Re: Sumit Nagal thread

^^^ He is not a big momentum guy, and has shown before that he can take time off and get back in good form. I am not worried too much about that. But we really don't know why he is taking 5+ weeks off. The reasons he has given do not make too much sense. He said 2-3 weeks at first, entered tournamen...

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

If that is the schedule going to be, then it is nothing but like skiving off school lesson's. Dont know who really is advising him on truancy of tournaments. Rajiv, I am pretty sure there are some other reasons behind this. Nobody will take 5+ weeks off right after reaching a career-high, dropping ...

Re: Manas Dhamne thread

Good win by Manas and good to see that he came thru a long 3 setter. In the recent past in these kind of long matches, he has had fitness issues and he either retired or lost the third set cheaply. Just as you felt, Manas ran out of gas after the long 3.5 hour match yesterday and a close first set ...

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

Aryan with a terrific upset of the 4th seed!! Scores updated above. 22 yr old Dev Javia is playing a good match too now (he seems to have got back to good form lately, after some 3 years in the wilderness) Update: Dev upset Lomakin as well... He was down 15-40 while serving for the match, but won th...

Re: Sahaja Yamalapalli thread

Sahaja is at the W75 in Charlottesville, but got no favors from the Draw [R1] Sahaja Yamalapalli (IND,309) vs (1) Kayla Day (USA,84) It is on the grey US clay. Not too comfortable for Sahaja, I am sure... Let us see how she does here. In doubles there, Sahaja and Kateryna Volodko (UKS) lost the R1 t...

Re: Roland Garros Claycourt Run-Up Tournaments 2024

Sumit and Yuki will not make it to Olympics together. The cut-off at Tokyo olympics was combined rankings was 76. Even if it falls a little it is not going to go down below 80-85 or so. No chance for Sumit- Yuki who have a combined rank of 136 right now. Oh I didn't remember that it was that high. ...

Re: Manas Dhamne thread

A typical claycourt humdinger lasting 3 hours and 21 minutes. Manas was down a break in the final set, then came back to take a 5-4 lead, had 6 MPs on his opponent's next two service games, and eventually won on the 7th one. He clearly dominated the final set from about 2-3 onwards, but was having ...

Chirag Duhan and Dev Javia qualified in, so they also play R1 tomorrow (Wednesday). Manish Sureshkumar went down today in the R1 and so did Sai Karteek in the Q2.

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

So any points from Cagliari for Sumit will be added back when the rankings are next updated in 2 weeks. Yes, and the Bordeaux challenger follows later, for one more chance at playing lower ranked players with higher probability for some wins. He needed to mix in some good challengers, because you c...
