Re: Australian open 2019

Not sure I agree with Arjun & Jay after watching the first two sets of Prajnesh vs Tiafoe. Tiafoe wasn't playing well at all until maybe late in the second set. I think a little more patient approach from Prajnesh & he could have controlled that match.

Re: Australian open 2019

I didn't watch the third set. From.the first two, my takeaway is that he needs to be more patient. Tiafoe wasn't constructing points well, just hitting hard. Prajnesh was impatient too often.

Also, he is going to need more oomph on the backhand side to compete at the ATP level.

Re: Australian open 2019

Tiafoe has figured out that as long as he is patient, he will win the point. Prajnesh has not shown the ability to hang in the longer rallies.

Well, bed time for me. Hope to wake up to good news, but not looking likely.

Re: Australian open 2019

He's going for broke early in points quite often. Not sure if that is strategic given the heat.

And, starts playing more patiently and is immediately rewarded with a break! 2-1 up second set.

Re: Australian open 2019

Great return by Tiafoe to get a minibreak, then makes a UFE to give it back to Prajnesh. 6-6. Goes with serve to 7-8 when Prajnesh absolutely blows it smashing a routine ball wide to lose the set. Horrendous miss. I wish I could use a different word, but that's a choke. He had the entire court. Quic...

Re: AFC Asian Cup - 2019 UAE

That is true. But I'm still hoping we can win the group and get an easy opponent. It would mean we win and the other game is a tie, which is thoroughly possible.

Re: AFC Asian Cup - 2019 UAE

Excellent. I couldn't watch it, but this is a very encouraging result. Bahrain & UAE drew 1-1 so we are top of our pool for now. To temper expectations a bit, Thailand are the lowest ranked team in our pool currently, but their ranking is almost equal to Bahrain. So hopefully we can trounce Bahrain ...

Re: India in Australia, 2018-2019

What is the definition of a "miss"? A regulation easy chance? Does each missed chance really cost 30-35 runs? Is that guesstimate based on a par innings score of 300-350, or some other calculation? How many chances does a competent keeper miss in an average test that goes the distance? Zero? I am no...

Re: India in Australia, 2018-2019

Rahul is younger than Mayank. It is still possible that both of them can be the medium term solution. We do need two openers, and for all his promise we don't know what Shaw will turn out to be.
