Re: BWF Thomas & Uber Cup Finals

I think Srikanth and Satwik-Chirag are stars of this showing for us. Srikanth won 6 out of 6 matches, of which last 2 were against higher ranked players and almost all of them in crunch matches. Satwik-Chirag won 5 out of their 6 matches and their last 3 wins were against teams from Malaysia, Denmar...

Re: BWF Thomas & Uber Cup Finals

And Satwiik-Chirag come back saving 4 matchpoints in second game to win in 3 games against mighty Indonesian doubles team. :clap: :clap:

They win 18-21 23-21 21-19 to take us to a 2-0 lead.

Srikanth against Jonathan Christie now. Can he seal the deal here ?

Re: Manas Dhamne thread

Manas is making his pro tour debut today as he has got wild card into qualies draw at Francavilla Challenger. Looks like premature for a 14 year old to play challenger qualifiers when he is struggling to win matches at higher level of junior tour but that is what these European academies do to playe...

Re: Yuki Bhambri

Yes, of course he should play it. What we are saying is if he had played at least a couple of matches on singles on clay, he would have had a better chance to convert that €10k to €16K and maybe more by winning matches in qualies.

Re: BWF Thomas & Uber Cup Finals

Korea upset mighty China in the final ( and Japan in SF) to win Uber Cup. Hope we see another upset in Thomas cup final which starts in couple of hours time. I thought we had no chance against Indonesia. But, looking at head to head, we are actually ahead in 3 of the 5 matches - Lakshya, Satwik-Chir...

Re: French Open 2022

Doubles Entry list is out.... And as feared, RamK didn't make it in directly as his partner for the event, Sander Arends, currently has a doubles ranking of 101.... On the bright side, they are #1 in the ALT list and will most probably make it in.... Combined ranking for RamK and Arends for entry l...

Re: Yuki Bhambri

True, if he had played singles at 1-2 of those futures and/or Bangalore Challengers, he would have got his ranking around or inside top 500 which would have got him into qualifying draws of all the challengers that he wanted to play in. But, probably he does not want to play on clay challengers much...

Srikanth and Prannoy have been stars so far winning 5 out 5 matches and Satsik-Chirag have delivered when it materred most in last 2 matches.
