Re: Leander Paes thread...

Seriously, I have not seen a player who loves playing more than LP. Even when he is down to the non-glamorous challenger tour, he keeps going. He is our "Challenger Bunny" :-) That is nothing but insane passion and pure love for Tennis. I can't think of any other world class athlete from across all...

Time to take revenge for that tough loss at Wimbledon.

Re: Prajnesh Gunneswaran thread

He has 57 points to defend for rest of the year and only 12 in first quarter of next year.So, if he keeps up this form he can make a big surge towards top 100. He earned 65 points for the finals last week, so wouldn't that be enough to defend the 57 that would fall off in the next few weeks? - Varma

Thanks for the correction, Dinesh. It is a 250 tournament indeed.

Re: ATP Tennis/Non-India Davis Cup

Zverev has been remarkably consistent for the past couple of years. His ranking fully justifies it. However, he needs to shoo away his mental daemons at the Grandslams. He got to do something about it...quicker the better. It took time for Coric to slowly make his way back after the mixed couple of ...

Re: ATP Tennis/Non-India Davis Cup

Tsitsipas wins his maiden ATP tile at Stockholm 500 to be the first Greek to win a pro Title. Of all the players in 19-21 age group, I like this fellow a lot. While a few others showed minor inconsistencies (Taifoe, Fritz, Rubulev), I think this kid has been showing remarkable cool and steady progre...

Unfortunately so, Jay. Over the years I have realized it is better to keep zero expectations of Yuki. That way, w...

Re: October 2018 Challengers

Wow...what a show by Prajnesh who started the year at 243. He only has 51 points to defend for the rest of the year, but he already bagged 65 points this week. Every single point from here on will push his ranking upwards. If he can put up a strong show in the few remaining tournaments and work his ...

Re: ITF Women $100K Suzhou, China, October 15-21

It clearly looks like a case of opponent being under-ranked. Otherwise, I don't see Ankita losing with that scoreline to an opponent closer to her in ranking.

Re: WTA125Ks - Mumbai (Oct 29th), Taipei (Nov 11th)

It will wonderful if Pranjala gets a favorable draw and get a couple of wins under her belt. Would that be enough to put her in a good standing for an Australian Open qualies spot?

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 ...
