And as hoped for, Bala draws the 20 yr Spanish 441 ranked WC.
Can he(Bala) continue his fairy tale run.

Black & Red Shoes Bala , shows he still has the wares for singles and moves in to the MD draw with a straight sets wins 3 & 3.
With 2 quali win's jumps up 200 places in the singles ranking from 1323 to 1100's and a win in the MD draw will get him into the 900's.

Re: Alicante Challenger (Hard), Oct 11-17, 2021.

Bala ranked 1323 scores an impressive straight sets win 76 76 over his 339 ranked opponent to move in R2 of the qualifying. Have been noticing Bala since the past month has been comming for all his matches wearing a strange combination of one black color and one red color shoe. Is it some kind of su...

Re: Infected by the Corona Virus

Alicante Challenger (Hard), Oct 11-17, 2021.

At this Challenger being held  at the Juan Carlos Academy and the training stable for Carlos Alcaraz , Ram opens up against a former Top 100 Thomas Fabbiano, and should he overcome a probable more stiffer 3rd seed Oscar Otte awaits him in R2. For the Dbls Ram & Bala face Kacper Zuk/Borna Gojo, while...

Re: Pranjala Yadlapalli thread

Katie Swan would be tough, saw her (Katie)play some exciting qualifying matches and subsequently advanced to the Wimbledon MD.
It would be terrific upset if our girl can overcome her.

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

At the IW qualies R1 , Ram faced the last player a 300 ranked something to get into the qualies but still couldn't capitalise on this easy draw and went down 46 63 46 . Would have been better to follow Sumit and Praj , who would have easily made the qualies draw but rightly avoided the long trek fro...

Re: Football: Indian National Team news ...

Saw the match, 52 minute BD missed an open goal, our Gurpreet was just watching helplessly , even with 10 men BD looked more of an attacking outfit.
Lucky to escape with a draw.

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Nice win by Sumit, always knew he was playing good since the last 3 weeks, and only the vital break eluded him, hope he sustains this form and goes deep in this tournament. Not sure about his rest of season plans, as Praj & Ram have their entries worked out for the next 3 weeks, but Sumit appears on...

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

This is a good confidence boosting win , but next round would be very tough as most likely it would be against the 19yr Czech Jiri Lececka who last week won a Bucharest challenger played on the clay.

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

After Alicante Challenger , Ram has rightly avoided the only Clay court challenger available in Europe in Croatia , and instead given entries for the 2 biggies at Moscow & Antwerp ,where of course there is no guarantee he can make the cut for the qualies , but things can drastically change at the la...

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Yes, in the Live Rankings Sumit has fallen to 223, and it is very important for him to recoup points this week. Have watched him play in the past weeks ,and nothing wrong with his game , he is playing well and it is only his serve which makes the all important difference in winning and losing. Again...

Re: Davis Cup 2020- India

But has an uncanny ability to keep every one in good humour, and that is why we have never seen any sort of rebellion / murmurs from any single player (present & past) as we saw previously against some of the DC captains.
