Re: Terrorist attack in Kashmir - 44 jawans dead

Our Preparedness is in Shambles. Last week our family was on a Holiday in the same region. And routinely our driver would honk at the military convoy/vehicles and even overtake them Where in the world can one honk at the military , leave alone overtaking them. Pathetic state of Affairs..... Did you...

Re: Davis Cup 2019 - India

Yes broken at crucial times , even had break point earlier but couldnot convert , and now down a set.
Seems so quite here , compared to earlier days ...hardly seems like DC match is in progress.

Re: Davis Cup 2019 - India

Last year Berrettini has victories over Jack Sock and Dustin Brown on Grass , and at Halle where he beat Dustin Brown , Seppi went on to beat him to advance further.

Re: Davis Cup 2019 - India

Considering his uninspiring form on grass , Barazuttii replaces their top player, 16 ranked Cecchinato with a 50th ranked Marteo Berrrettini , so Seepi becomes their # 1 and faces Ram in the opener, and Berrettni against Pragnesh in the second . The first match is going to be very crucial , and now ...

Re: Davis Cup 2019 - India

So Mahesh will start with Prajnesh and Ram to open the proceedings https://www.thehindu.com/sport/tennis/india-vs-italy-davis-cup-qualifier-match-kolkata/article26127767.ece Looking at the Italians , their number #1 Player Marco Cechinato has played only 2 grass courts tournaments in 2018 and only 1...

Re: Davis Cup 2019 - India

Interview of Prajnesh in the below link. But the worrying part is Zeeshan's comments; who finds the court very slow compared to the past, which means do we have a Wimbledon type of a playing surface. If so the Italians would find it much to their liking. https://m.telegraphindia.com/sport/in-best-of...

Re: Davis Cup 2019 - India

Re: Prajnesh Gunneswaran thread

There are two back-to-back challengers in Bangkok so probably he'll be there for the next week too. Rohit yes you were right !! , after the first leg at Bangkok he has also entered the 2nd leg at Bangkok and once again he is the top seed there. These 3 challengers are going to be very crucial for h...

Re: Davis Cup 2019 - India

I would prefer taking this risk over Prajnesh, Had it been clay or hard courts PG would be a preferred logical choice , But on grass Saki has much better attributes in terms of serve and volleying skills and big serves ,but all of this subject to his fitness level.and if he is fit , it might be wort...

Re: Davis Cup 2019 - India

Just to think outside the box, it might be worthwhile to consider Saki for the second singles,  as Saki has a better grass court game and is a natural serve and volleyer with a big serve,  But this option would be subject to Saki being 100% fit and the Captain could determine his fitness level durin...

Re: Australian open 2019

Sin and Jai , Prasen is correct about 3 individuals sounding same phonetically and that was precisely I was implying about this rarity , And it was all about the Chinese getting confused  due to these similar sounding names inspite different spellings
