Re: October 2018 Challengers

What a consummate victory for Prajnesh, who rises to a career high of 146. Winning the title will take him to 132. What a stupendous year it’s been for him!

Re: October 2018 Challengers

This year has been an absolute mess for Yuki, compounded by poor decisions about scheduling that were aimed at making money without focusing on gathering points. Now big trouble looms on the latter front.

Re: October 2018 Challengers

Terrific win for Prajnesh, who is 154 in the live rankings, just two slots below his career high earlier this year.

Re: October 2018 Challengers

Looks like Yuki is not coming to China after all , he has withdrawn from the Liuzhou Challenger and it would be unlikely he would show up at Shenzen a week later. Since he’s in Europe, won’t it make more sense for him to try qualifying in at Vienna or Basel for next week? If he doesn’t turn up at e...

Re: West Indies in India, 2018

Prithvi Shaw opened the batting yesterday for Mumbai against Hyderabad in the Hazare trophy SF. Shaw made 61 off 44 balls, Rohit having fallen for 17 off 24. When Shaw was out for 61, the team score was 82/2... This fellow should very clearly be playing in the ODI team for India! For those who don't...

Re: October 2018 Challengers

There is a "Chinese" player called "Te Rigele" in the singles draw at Ningbo. This is clearly not a Chinese name, so I dug around and sure enough the guy is a 21 year old from Hohhot (Inner Mongolia). His actual name is Tergel, and he is Mongol (i.e., a Buddhist from the land that once ruled most of...

Re: Purav Raja thread...

Purav’s partner is ranked 104, just one slot above Balaji. Begemann is 102, with a career high of 36, and his partner Polasek (now #167 although aged only 33) has a career high of 20. This was a very good win, but Purav should be playing one of the ATP tournaments instead. He would not be getting i...

Re: ATP Tournaments - September-October 2018

Couldn’t follow the match. It’s MahaAshtami after all, the biggest day on the Bengali Hindu calendar. Very similar pattern to all his recent matches. He dominates the first set — even being two breaks up here, then fails to capitalise on the set points, gets broken when serving for the set, and lose...

Re: October 2018 Challengers

Saketh/Balaji swept to a 60 63 shellacking of a good pair, Statham/Moriya.

Now, Sumit/RamK are up 64 30 in their match, while Arjun/Prajnesh are up 30 in the first set of theirs. Something about ducks and water — Indians and doubles.

Re: October 2018 Challengers

Good win in the end over a local player — and Prajnesh has at least lived up to his seeding. Well done! He plays an unseeded player next.

Balaji/Saketh have won the first set over Statham/Moriya 6-0, and are up on serve 3-2 in the second.
