Saketh is 112 in live rankings, Yuki at 134. Both at their career highs. It is so very tough to move up from challenger level to ATP level in doubles. One needs to be in 80's to make it in some of the ATP 250's for which around 1000 points are needed. Saketh is at 720 points right now and Yuki at 53...

Re: US Hard court Challengers 2022

They are comeback kings, Yuki and Saki. So many matches they have pulled off like this in last few months from losing position. That was a tough pairing to play against Saville and Thompson.

Re: Indian Athletics Thread ...

Sreeshankar ended 6th with a jump of 7.94M at Monaco Diamomd league. A jump at same level as his CWG mark of 8.06 would have taken him to 4th place. Top 3 which included Tokyo Olympic gold and bronze medalists were all above 8.30M though.
