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...

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?

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

Re: Wimbledon 2018

Even though they could only raise $3K out of the planned $100K for their "Journey to Wimbledon" project, I am so glad Vishnu & Bala were able to achieve their goal of making it to the main draw at the famed All-England Lawns. They both have it in them to be a formidable pair and be regulars on the A...

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: 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.
