Re: Youth Olympics 2018, Buenos Aires, Argentina, 6th-18th October

Lakshya lost in the finals and comes home with a Silver :-(

Finals
Lakshya Sen (IND) l. Li Shifeng (CHN) 15-21, 19-21

Disappointing, but not bad. He has a bright future ahead. Maybe he will end up winning gold at the 2024 Paris Olympics :-)

Re: Indian Origin Players Thread

Gautam...that was a nice and comprehensive interview. Yes, several of us here have been keeping an eye on Govind Nanda for a while. I am pretty sure the interest will keeping increasing as he starts getting better. That he is from Southern California makes me keep a closer tab on this kid :) Thanks ...

Re: AITA Fenesta Nationals

It's very encouraging to see someone ranked so low beating an in-form Khade. I hope coach Shukla is exposed to "new-age" coaching techniques. It's good that he was thinking out of the box to buy a ball machine that hurls bullets. If Siddharth's growth is not uni-dimensional, his results will show up...

Re: Rutuja Bhosale thread

That's quite an impressive run from Rutuja who seems to be consistently punching above her weight. QF is going to be a stern test against yet another higher ranked opponent who will be backed by a partisan crowd.

Re: Tennis Asian Games 2018, Indonesia - Jakarta Palembang 2018

Even for Ankita, I think it will be better to go play Asian games and make some money. Let's say she makes it to the main-draw at USO and lose in R1 (high probability), she would only make about 50K, I suppose? However, even if she wins a bronze medal she will end up making more money than that in i...

[R1] N. Sriram Balaji (IND)/ Vishnu Vardhan (IND) vs Federico Delbonis (ARG)/ Guido Pella (ARG) 7-6(7), 0-0 Vishnu and Bala bagged an extremely hard-fought first set at 7. They won 43 points to their opponents' 42. Neither team could break the other (Vishnu/Bala saved all 3 BPs against them while fa...

Re: ATP Tournaments in North America, July-August 2018

...A better guess I have had is that it has something to do with the Indian genes possibly having some special characteristic that connects reflexes to wrists, along with some general flexibility of the wrists. That comes in handy when there is uneven bounce. This possible ability of Indian genes m...

Re: ATP Tournaments in North America, July-August 2018

I have heard of RamK's volleying prowesses from others in this forum but never watched it myself, so I was hoping to see him play this QF match against old-style serve and volleyer, Mischa Zverev. Apparently Pospisil had other thoughts :p . Anyway, RamK is cruising along just fine, up a break in the...

Re: Kazakh/Uzbek Challengers, June 2018

Top seeded Youzhny did manage to beat Alejandro Gonzalez (who has a career high of 70) 7-5 in the final set to go through to a R2 encounter against Saketh. When I last followed live scores, the Columbian was serving for the match at 5-3 in the final set (30-30, if i remember well in my half-sleepy ...

With their Braunschweig QF win, Vishnu and Balaji move up to new CHs - 92 & 101.
Including their Wimbly points?
