Re: Yuki Bhambri

Is the sample size large enough for this to be significant?

Re: Indian Athletics Thread ...

Until I hear otherwise from someone in the know, I've been giving Neeraj a pass on that suspicion. His progression hasn't had some of the red flags that other Indian track & field athletes demonstrate, and he is still very young. I hope that I will not be disabused of giving him the benefit of the d...

Re: Indian tennis player rankings

Suresh beat me to it & I agree completely. The rankings race will change significantly after FO & Wimbledon. Of course, it is possible that Yuki & RamK will capitalize & do even better, but the other guys might slip further back.

Re: Asian Challengers - April 2018

May the best guy win, and I will always support both. But, on a day when both are fully fit, I expect Yuki to beat RamK easily every time.

Serbia currently has #s 13, 27, 68, 90, 95. At home, maybe. In Serbia that is very daunting.

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

No disagreement on the doubles point. But I don't have as high an opinion of RamK as you do. I'd be happy if he can win one match in a playoff tie and stunned if he can win 2.

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

Of course, all of this is moot if Yuki isn't healthy. We have no shot against any of those teams in that case.

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

I could see us beat Switzerland away. IF they show up without Murray AND Edmund, we would beat GB at home. Otherwise any of these is a massive stretch.

When will the draw take place for us to know our next opponents? Monday?

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

Ugh. We can't even celebrate for 24 hours without this Leander vs not Leander nonsense rearing its ugly head? Let's drop it now.

Apart from Sumit, every guy on the team contributed massively. Let's celebrate a team performance, for once.

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

Does the play-off use the new format or the world group format? Only team we have a chance against in that list is Hungary. I believe WG playoffs & ties still use the old format, but with a 5 person team instead of 4. I.e. you can have 3 singles players & a doubles pair, but you still play over thr...

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

It isn't correct to attribute home court advantage to gamesmanship. They picked a spot where their players are more comfortable than ours, and they are entirely entitled to do so.
