Re: AITA News .....

The AITA has renamed their (quite teribble...) Facebook account to TFI - any idea what is going on there? Got to spend the money somewhere. A needless rebranding sounds a great idea during the committee meetings. Makes them look like they are doing something. AILTA became AITA became TFI . .. becom...

Re: Asian Challengers - April 2018

Another rope-a-dope by Prajnesh, losing the first set and then storming back to wrap it up ... pun intended (hint, the opponent was Egyptian)! Sent the Egyptian back to his Cairo-practor! Safwat ran into the Sphinx and he couldn't solve the puzzle, and paid the price!

Re: Asian Challengers - April 2018

Prajnesh dis an excellent Muhammed Ali rope-a-dope impression losing the first set to love and then storming back to deliver the knock out punch.

Re: Asian Challengers - April 2018

In three Davis Cup matches, in Frejus, and once in Czech Republic, though. Otherwise, he religiously stayed away from clay. His game was much more suited for clay than hard courts, in my opinion, but he hated clay. .... But his clay game was not that bizzare, and his quickness, out-of-this-world to...

Re: Asian Challengers - April 2018

I think this has nothing really to do with any of the Indian academies. Indians are able to come up with the funds needed to go to Europe and learn; mainly in the Spanish tennis centers and some in Germany. I think what is also helping them is that they have all become comfortable with clay because...

Re: Asian Challengers - April 2018

Great to see the young lads competing hard, achieving improving results, and showing good determination. Gives me hope and optimism for the future of Indian tennis. Curious which Indian academies are producing these players. No thanks to the fuddy duddies at the AITA, I am sure.

To paraphrase Michelle Obama by way of guidance to Yuki "When they go Lo, we go high!"

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

Guys, just chill a little. Giving credit is not a zero sum game. It's not like there's only a limited amount of credit to go around in the Universe - that by giving Leander credit it takes away from the other players. The other guys on the team are obvioysly excellent players in their own right with...
