Re: Davis Cup 2020- India

Seems there must have been a change in the reverse singles tie - live scores show Prajnesh vs Marin match is canceled.

Re: Fed Cup Thread for India ..

That 16 yo Indonesian player Madelyn is the reigning AO junior doubles champion, but of course that shouldn’t trouble our much experienced Sania/Ankita pairing. Hopefully, we will win this in straight sets.

Re: Fed Cup Thread for India ..

A win is a win. Phew!

Indonesia’s Sutjiadi (Univ of Kentucky alum) is a tricky player - Ankita has to be on her A-game to beat her tomorrow.

Re: Davis Cup 2020- India

Gojo’s loss to Sid is very misleading and shouldn’t be accounted for. That Bengaluru tournament surprised us with a lot of upset wins owing to the altitude. Gojo used to be the top singles player for Wake Forest where Sid Banthia is currently playing. His height and game is probably well suited for ...

Re: Fed Cup Thread for India ..

Ankita completes a 7-5 6-1 win against Uzbek #1. Good to see us capitalizing on day 2 against a less fancied team.

Re: Fed Cup Thread for India ..

Wow! We are one up already against Uzbekistan with Rutuja defeating the former top-50 player Amanmuradova.

Ankita leads 6-5 against Sabina, but the scoreboard says someone has a medical timeout. Hoping nothing wrong with Ankita.

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

Ramkumar lost to Clezar in 3 sets - probably the worst losses of all time - the Brazilian is a typical clay courter. :kookoo:

Looks like Karman still may not be fully fit still. Otherwise this match should have been easy for her.
Is it always about fitness, though? What if Berfu played well in the last 2 sets? She also beat her in November last year when they met in Gwalior.

Rutuja has been given a MD WC. She is featured in both the singles and the doubles draw.
