Re: East Asian Challengers, April-May 2019

Jay Clarke has a big heart as well. I recall him beating RamK at FO qualies after getting thrashed in the set 1 (scoreline of 6-3 doesn't show how easily RamK was winning) and set 2 was on serve when he got his first break point of the match. That was a long rally and he just wouldn't give up miracu...

Re: European Masters and ATP Tournaments 2019

Dusan Lajovic can play! He had some awesome shots at Monte Carlo where he lost to Fognini in the semis. Hope he doesn't carry his form into doubles as well.

Re: Golden Stars of Indian Tennis

Didn't know where to write but just read, Maggie Amritraj passed away. She was 92. Mother of Anand, Vijay and Ashok Amritraj. Unfortunately, I never read a lot about her but from what I read, it was pretty inspiring. Didn't know she was instrumental in running of BAT. Sad to hear the news. She was ...

An article on Kamlesh Nagarkoti's rehab -- you might recall he was one half of the fast bowling pair that won us the U19 World Cup in Australia.

Re: $25,000 Women's ITF, Hong Kong April 8-14

Bad day in Hong Kong. Mahak lost in the qualies while Riya and Mihika won. Zeel and Rutuja lost in the first round. Let's hope that Riya and Mihika do better in their first round matches.

Re: India Open/Malaysia Open/Singapore Open - March 2019

I feel that Lin Dan gets into the head of other players and messes up their game. Chen Long easily won the first game and then started struggling to win a point at the start of game two thanks to Lin Dan mixing things up.
