Re: [Tennis] Misc. Results for Indians abroad...

As of now, among Indians under the age of 20, Aditya and only 2 other guys have 2 or more ATP points (talented 18 year old Nishant Dabas and 19 year old Karan Singh), but Aditya is the only one under 20 with a win over a top-1000 ATP player.

Re: [Tennis] Misc. Results for Indians abroad...

I was watching it this week. When he won the Q2, I thought, "hmmm, what is that?"... When he won the Q3, I thought "huh? WTF?"... Then he won the R1, and I thought "isn't that nice, he got his first ATP points too, lucky dude!" (as the other guy retired late in the 3rd set). Then he went and upset t...

Re: European women's ITF events

Prarthana Thombare, playing with Emily Appleton (GBR) and seeded first, is in the doubles SF at the W25 in Vrnjacka Banja, Serbia. She is still doing her thing and deserves kudos for the dedication.

Re: European women's ITF events

I think we have discussed Naiktha earlier here in Indian origin players thread. She reached a career high of top 200 in 2020. But, seems to have fallen back post covid break and looks to have to reached QF after long time. Hope Ankita stops her progress there though. Naikhta played a humdinger of a...

Re: Indian Volleyball

Yeah, a really good win. South Korea had lost to Japan 2-3 in a 13-15 fifth setter just like we did, so I wouldn't have expected us to roll over them in straight sets like this! Hmmm.... This is looking very positive indeed. We get Chinese Taipei next in the QF. They beat Kuwait but lost 0-3 to Iran...

Re: Sports and Performance Enhancing Drugs (Doping)

So she timed it right, before the Olympics, and managed not to get caught then. I remember that we were suspicious of what was going on. Thanks, Mugu.
