Re: Prediction/Rumor Thread

I agree with Suresh. The ITF tour will most likely be canceled for the rest of the year. That basically means we are done with US Open. The USTA has extended the suspension of all tournaments and leagues until mid July but they mentioned (rather strange) that the junior clay court nationals will be ...

Re: Working from home during Covid-19

Surprisingly, it’s been pretty smooth for us. The team is located all over the world (80% in Frankfurt, London, NY, Gurgaon) . The ones in India do complain about spotty internet access from their homes. Personally, I could get used to this :) More sleep, less travel and no 2 hr commute everyday!

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Article This paper is absolute bullshit. Done with no insightful look into the problem, by people (engineers) who have no background in epidemiology. That is sometimes okay, but the analysis and discussion with neural net models and regression, which will show some positive or negative correlation ...

Re: Fed Cup Thread for India ..

A huge congratulations! Really impressed with Rutuja’s fighting spirit and of course Sania. Hopefully Karman is back and it should give us more options!

Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

Folks, I finally caught up on season 1 of “Inside Edge”, the TV series available on Amazon Prime (in the US). It is quite gripping and well made. I assume that it’s based on IPL league. If it’s true, it’s rather shocking as to what goes on in the league. Does anyone know if there’s any truth in what...

Re: Indian Badminton Thread ...

Interesting conversation here. Until a couple of years ago, I was always under the impression that Indians follow authority blindly (except maybe in Cricket). To get to that next level, all athletes need to be like how Abhinav Bindra was...completely focused on the goal. His book is a must read. I t...

Re: Indian Origin Players Thread

I looked through the draw and there were a very large number of Indian names! There’s quite a few Indians and Indian origin players in the main draw. The ITD folks collated a list of players. Here’s the link to the post on Instagram. Admins - please feel free to delete if links to other sites aren’...

Re: Manas Dhamne thread

Manas made it to the semi finals of the Orange Bowl under 12 event before losing 46 57 to the top seed from Colombia. It seems Orange Bowl was on clay . So, the South American kid would have had advantage. Anyway, title at Eddie Herr and SF at Orange Bowl under 12 underline Manas as one of the best...

Congrats to Rohan and Guatam for this excellent run. Another Indian origin kid, Nishesh Basavareddy has reached the final in the Orange Bowl under 14's. Nishesh appears a really talented kid . He has already won a grade 5 title at under 18's and reached a final in a grade 4. Thanks all. Nishesh is ...

Re: $54(+H) Pune Challenger, November 11-18,2019

That's exactly what I was thinking too. Hit the felt off the ball in practice and make the shots and the serve more accurate. You cant hit the net or go over the line as often as he does, when his shot selection is so good. Some of the running retrieval shots and service returns he hits are gems. H...

Re: $54(+H) Pune Challenger, November 11-18,2019

watching Mukund play I guess for the first time ; the guy has the tools to have a decent tennis career provided he gets a right coach who can work on consistently inconsistent shot making ... Yeah, Mukund is no fluke player, and he is not going away anywhere anytime soon. He has got some strong wea...

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

The locals with the flag or the ambassador didn't come on their own.

They've been doing their share of help in m...
