Re: Ankita Raina thread

That is a bit surprising. If I recall Ankita had played in this Tashkent tournament for last 2-3 years. It looks like she was not in the original entry list at all. Perhaps, she has taken a training break or something. There are lots of ITF 25K tournaments ( and WTA Mumbai where she did well last ye...

Re: Japan/China/Korea Open September 2018

Only Srikanth and Sindhu remain for us this week and they too had to come thru tough 3 game matches against lower ranked players.

Re: Asian Challengers July-September 2018

Prajnesh got broken in the third game of third set for 1-2 but broke right back for 2-2. But, from 30-0 up Prajnesh gets broken for 3-4. And he got broken again to lose the match. :-( At $150K+H Kaohsiung Challenger 2018, Chinese Taipei [R1] (8) Prajnesh Gunneswaran (IND,162) l. Jurij Rodionov (AUT,...

Re: Asian Challengers July-September 2018

Rodionov broke Prajnesh and was serving for the match at 5-4 but Prajnesh broke him at love with some excellent play.

Prajnesh serving at 5-5 now.

He saves a bp at 30-40 at hold for 6-5.

And he breaks Rodionov to take the second set 7-5. Won 4 games from 3-5 down there.

Re: Asian Challengers July-September 2018

Watching Prajnesh's match on ATP live stream. He looked totally off color at the start, making lots of errors to go down 0-5 in the first set. Then, he seemed to have some range in his shots and got back to 3-5 but Rodinov served out for the set for 6-3. Prajnesh will have to play like he did in the...

Re: Football: Indian National Team news ...

We lost 1-2 to Maldives in the final.

Although it is only an under 23 team a loss to Maldives is not a good result considering how we have been doing in the recent past.

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

Yes, that is a bit surprising. The wild card may go to Switzerland too if they commit that Roger and Stan will be playing. Somehow, this wild card thing looks unnecessary.
