Re: $15K Thailand Women's ITF Tour - May 1/7 2018

I do not want to be disrespectful to Sowjanya, but I watched the last 2 games of her match yesterday. The quality was so poor, I felt as if I were watching a local club match. I had never watched her play before, so I am not sure if she was hampered by an injury or if it was lack of fitness, but the...

Re: Prarthana Thombare thread

When I was following scores last night, they were up 4-1 in the first set :-(

Re: Ankita Raina thread

If a girl ranked lower than Ankita was able to stretch Yafan Wang to the limit, maybe Ankita can go a step further and upset her.

Round Babuta.
Someone really named their kid "Round"? Or is this some sort of nickname because he is rolypoly? Or is this auto-correct raising its head again?
My sis-in-law had a friend named "Straightline" during her days at Osmania University. :rofl:

Re: Asian Challengers - April 2018

Yes, this is a great opportunity for Vishnu and Bala. Just 3 wins for a 150K title, almost $10K in prize money, and 125 points each!

Re: Yuki Bhambri

Yuki is a big stage player. He punches above his weight often when he gets chances to play against higher ranked players. The way he is playing, he should definitely be playing ATP events exclusively unless there is a desperate need to go for challengers. His game matches up quite well against most ...

Re: If you had to choose which weapon...

For me it will be serve, hands down! Even a mediocre server on tour holds serve for more than 50% (which is probably on an ultra conservative estimate). If I have a lethal serve a la Isner/Karlovic/Ivanisevic, I am guaranteed a spot in top-50 at some point in my career and make enough money to emplo...

Re: Asian Challengers - April 2018

Champions find a way to win when they are not playing at their best. Yuki did just that today! Not only was he limited by his abdominal tear, but he was competing against an in-form player who probably knew Yuki's weaknesses more than anyone else. You are awesome, Yuki! It was not too long ago we we...

Re: Asian Challengers - April 2018

Today's match will be RamK's improved game vs Yuki being not 100% fit. I think RamK will win it this time around. End of the day, we will have a winner of $150K abroad! Something that was unimaginable until recently. I hope this trend continues. May the best player win today!

Re: Asian Challengers - April 2018

Saketh played decently in the second set (the only one that I watched) against Donskoy but will likely need to work on his fitness and mobility to win with consistency against players of that caliber. Unlike most players, it is hard to tell if Saki is not moving well. He looks good with his booming...
