Re: AITA Fenesta Nationals

Some of you may know the scriptural reference to Vishwakarma in the Rigveda :D :D

Re: AITA Fenesta Nationals

I'm encouraged. His coach should not be satisfied with the immediate past training program - his ward should be put through boot camp at the NDA or with the indian marines 3 month boot camp. Rathore is a former military man and he is now the indian sports minister, and he should be approached with t...

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

I'm now thinking that Yuki likely was consulted on the venue choice - maybe he is timing his comeback here and after all he favours hard courts i think.

Re: Asian Tennis players' thread ...

All it takes is for 1-2 players to make a grand slam run like Osaka and nishikori made at the US Open in 2918, others get inspired too. Maybe we will see India surge in our lifetimes before we pass on. Stay optimistic is my motto. :D

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

I read the article and it made no sense - delhi gymkhana was out because of security? Total BS. Looks like AITA wanted it at the DLTA. Vijay wont turn down a DC tie in Chennai - that is a definite lie and if Vijay gets to hear of this I'm sure he'll deny it. No mention of south club Calcutta, sad. P...

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

This has to be at south club, Calcutta. Haven't had a Davis cup there in quite some time.

Re: ATP Tournaments Asia - September-October 2018

Ok so ramk used his backhand slice effectively - good for him. And looks like he smartly changed up on his serves and read his opponents serve too.

All good. Next round is dzhumur who may pose a different set of problems - hope he is up to the task, :goodluck:

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

I watched days 1 and 2 of the laver cup on TV. No question, the players have all understood that this format is the only escape from ITF and country association control. The ITF was refusing to accommodate the top players in the ATP with their schedules. The laver cup is the only chance to wrest con...

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

Watching the Laver Cup matches on TV live from Chicago today and tomorrow - and seeing the crowd and player enthusiasm, suddenly it struck me - this is going to be the premier version of the Davis cup of the future. The format - Europe vs World with top 50 player participation - the camaraderie, all...

Florian, thanks for all you have done. I really mean it. You have shown a dedication to be present at these matches and report on them - hats off to you. I feel bad that our team did not do well....we did not field our best doubles team and that leaves me wondering why. Bringing in Saki at the last...

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

Looks like i didn't miss anything. The team needs to rebuild from this loss and move on. The guys need to build their individual and doubles rankings and regroup for next year. Will need a new doubles team for sure.

Mahesh has a lot of experience - this should help with tactics on the ground. Easy to lecture from air-conditioned living room. The reality on the ground is very different!!😊

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

The DC website does not show any details on the doubles, other than Rohan now paired with Saketh. What happened?
