Re: General Tennis Discussions

Here is an article that sheds some light into this: What causes leg cramps? I am quoting from that article parts that may support your conjectures. Traditionally, such cramping was believed to arise from dehydration, electrolyte imbalances (including magnesium, potassium and sodium), accumulation o...

Re: Australian open 2019

How does Djoker manage to stay so low? Must have a rock hard core.. That is so true, Gautam. Years ago when Djoker was about 17 or 18, there was an interesting article written by Peter Bodo about how well he rotates his trunk. I will try to search it up and post. Rafa was looking so good these two ...

Re: India in Australia, 2018-2019

I cannot understand how Rayudu is allowed to play ODIs while he skips playing Ranji trophy cricket (hence ANY competitive cricket) between ODIs. It is one thing for the veteran Dhoni to be doing this (although that too is unacceptable), but Rayudu?? The guy is a marginal selection anyway! Apparentl...

Re: Ankita Raina thread

We Indians are not world beaters yet in most sports. Whenever we have Olympics, World Championship, and Asian games, I only expect our athletes to match or best their personal record. More often than not most of them fail to do so. It doesn't matter where Ankita's ranking stands, this girl time and ...

Re: Prajnesh Gunneswaran thread

Gunner's honest opinion about India's bad Tennis infrastructure was noticed by Tsitsipas who related it with his situation and mentioned it in his press conference yesterday . I saw one of the interviews that Gunneswaran gave a few days ago, the Indian guy, saying even if he does well it's not going...

Re: God in trouble in God's own country... Sabarimala

Human rights? Really? I did not want to debate on this topic, but couldn't resist when this "human rights" crap is thrown over and over again (no personal dig at you, Prasen. I am referring to the media in general). I always wanted to visit Sabarimala but didn't ever make it because I wasn't patient...

What an excellent read! Few pieces of it made me emotional. If Pujara ever wants his (auto)biography to be written, he should pick this writer.

Re: Australian open 2019

Gets the second set, 6-4!!! Praj had a set point in the last game when Watanuki was serving, but couldn't convert. He now receives first in the 3rd set, so he got be really careful. He needs to play aggressive on his opponents service games and break him as early as possible just the way he did in t...

Re: Australian open 2019

Prajnesh extends it to 4-2 in the second set, but this Japanese guy is looking ominous. Gunner has to stay laser focused to hold on to that slender lead and push it into the decider.
