Re: European Challengers 2020

Ramk actually started well leading 2-1 in the first set and then all went downhill, lost 6-2 6-2. :oops:

Re: Ankita Raina thread

^^^Ankita didn’t play 3 matches. Singles QR1 was played on Monday followed by FQR on Tuesday and the doubles R1 later in the evening. Considering she came back to win doubles, she was clearly outplayed by the Romanian.

Re: Ankita Raina thread

Ankita got double bageled. This score line doesn’t make sense to me considering she didn’t play a full 3 set match (rather an STB).

Re: Ankita Raina thread

This is such a strong field (MD cut off at <160 and OG gold medalist Monica Puig is #3 seed) and IIRC, this is the first time Ankita is playing in the USTA pro circuit. I hope she is able to compete with the local pros and win a couple of matches!

Re: Ankita Raina thread

Ankita wins in the STB. Phew! Up against Talaba, ranked lower than her but has had wins over Brengle, Bouchard last year. :goodluck:

Re: Ankita Raina thread

Yes, she’s in Macon, Georgia, as per her Instagram story. There are 4 back to back tournaments in the US and she needs to qualify for the main draw in the first 3 weeks (4th week EL is not out!). :goodluck:

Re: Ankita Raina thread

Ankita’s name appears in a couple of US ITF Challengers. It would be rather foolish of her to come to the US amidst all the mishandling of this virus (these tournaments are in the South, too)! She could have stayed in the EU. Will have to wait and see if she actually took such a gamble once the draw...

Re: Ankita Raina thread

Ankita is playing the $80K Cagnes-Sur-Mer ITF and is the top seed in the singles qualifying draw. She is slated to meet world number 6 junior Elisa Jacquemot in the next round, provided she wins her QR1 match against WTA #545 Tayisiya Morderger from Germany. This event is a competitive field with th...

Ankita will be partnering Samantha Murray Sharan at the WTA125 Prague event. Riya Bhatia has also made the main draw of the inaugural 128-player event.

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.
