Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

A country of 7 million beat a country of 1.3 billion, without losing a match, and they didn't even field their best team!! ☹
Not a great week to be an Indian sports fan - at least not for tennis and cricket.

Two Serb with love!
Let's hope there are more breaks of Serb(s) in the next 3 matches!

Re: US Open 2018

Mea culpa, jai_in_canada. The first match was going to be tough, and Yuki didn't help himself by not capitalising on his breaks in the second and third sets. No worries, @PKB. I do admire your relentless optimism. To be honest, I was somewhat hopeful myself (though not as much as you were) based on...

Re: US Open 2018

What??? Yuki lost??? In straights?? In the first round?? And I thought that because Yuki had gone completely quiet ahead of the tournament it meant that he'd been practicing and training really hard, which then meant that he'd likely come up with a sensational performance resulting in a relatively e...

Hopefully Yuki achieves the right pH(H) balance to neutralize any solution Pierre Hughes Herbert flings at him!!

At $668K Atlanta Open 2018, Georgia, USA

[SF] Purav Raja (IND) / Ken Skupski (GBR) l. (2) Ryan Harrison (USA) / Rajeev Ram (USA) : 3-6, 4-6
Ram is raja! Raja got the ram!

Still good showing by Raja-Skupski in this tournament.

Re: ATP Tournaments in North America, July-August 2018

Steve Johnson was on fire all week, not losing more than 3 games in any of the sets that he played. RamK took 5 games off of him in the first set, and took the second set 6-3. Great showing by the youngster in his very first final. I'm very proud and pleased with his performance - great smarts, guts...

Re: ATP Tournaments in North America, July-August 2018

Apparently Steve Johnson is 0-1 against Indians. He lost his very first ATP main draw match to ... Somdev. This according to the ATP website. However, he will be a tough, tough customer in the final. Nevertheless, RamK also seems to be riding high on confidence. So I am hoping for a cracker of a mat...

Artem Sitak is in the doubles final with Jonathan Erlich. Can you imagine the headlines if Ramkumar Ramanathan had played doubles partnering Artem Sitak?!

Game, set and match, Ram-Sita! 😋

Re: ATP Tournaments in North America, July-August 2018

The grass has been greener on the other side for Indians!!! Ram Nam Jai Ho!!! Actually the Newport grass is never too green, which seems to be to the Indians' liking. It is like those not-so-lush Indian grass courts with similar uneven bounce. I meant figuratively, not literally. 😊 I guess you're s...

Re: Wimbledon 2018

While I would be very happy to see Yuki do better - duh - as in what his potential in the junior ranks might have led us to hope, I am still happy with how he has done in the past 12 months - going back to his win over Monfils in DC. He has qualified for Masters events and Grand Slams, which should ...

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...
