Re: Sasi Kumar Mukund thread

How does one lose a match after getting 22-2 on free points from serves alone? 66 points to him and 76 to Tabila. But take away the serve points and it was 44 points to 74 points when the ball was in play. That shows how poorly he hit the shots today. Quite different than two days ago against Fanse...

Seeding works based on current rankings, is that correct? Or does it work based on entry list rankings?
Rohit the seedings are based as per the ATP rankings on the day the tournament commences.

Re: Sasi Kumar Mukund thread

In the live rankings , Mukund is at a career high of 229.

Till the end of the year he needs to protect 67 points out of which 7 he has already saved, its going to be a tough grind for him to aim for the AO qualies slot , although not impossible.

Re: Sasi Kumar Mukund thread

Yes a nice win in straight sets for Mukund, hope he can string up few more victories to aim for a shot at AO qualies.

Re: $150K(+H) Bangalore/$50K(+H) Pune Challenger, Nov.12-25, 2018

Pune EL is out , with not a very strong field , Prajnesh, Sumit , Ram , Mukund,Saki , Khade, S Rawat make up the Indian contingent with direct entries.

It would be nice if any one of our top 3 grabs the title, in this rare home Challenger.

Re: Sasi Kumar Mukund thread

Mukund wins the first set on TB (8-6), but not before getting out a mess as he lost 6 points in a row , this after being 5-1 up and was even facing a set point at 5-6

I am so excited seeing Kipchoge go under 2h. woohoo With  stress full and depressing news flowing unabated in the newspapers and TV stations  for the past 4 months.

From the onset Bhupathi had his reservations, and today he has indicated that even the players too are not keen , The entire bug land is seething with anti India sentiments and talking of nuclear war , and to set foot in that region is utter madness. Only if Khanna could take a firm stand on this. h...

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

At Barcelona,  Ram just managed to sneak in to get a seeding thereby getting a bye. Most likely Tommy Robredo would be his R2 opponent and on paper an easy match against an over the hill 37 year old veteran, however the Spaniard still has in him what took him to #6 in world rankings ,as just few mon...

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Wow what an amazing display by Sumit and that too demolishing the 108 ranked player.

In the past we have seen our guys excelling in different parts of the world, but never it has happened in SouthAmerica and that too on clay .. Simply unbelievable.
