Re: $150K(+H) Bangalore/$50K(+H) Pune Challenger, Nov.12-25, 2018

Thanks Sameer for the clarification. Looks like the three points were done while I was checking out the other match. I never said anything about it. :D But, sad to see Mukund having to retire. He was playing 6th match without any break which is always hard. Hope he recovers for next week in Pune an...

Re: $150K(+H) Bangalore/$50K(+H) Pune Challenger, Nov.12-25, 2018

What a super comeback by Prajnesh. Down 3-5, Fanselow had a match point serving at 40-30. He had an easy put away near the net but he hit it straight at Prajnesh and Prajnesh ripped a backhand winner. After that Prajnesh did not look back. He broke Fanselow and then won the next 3 games too to take ...

Oh, that match is over as Kavcic retired midway thru second set.

[R2] (Q) Sasi Kumar Mukund (IND,418) d. Blaz Kavcic (SLO,196) 76(3) 31 retd.

Second consecutive challenger where Mukund has come thru the qualifying and reached the QF. He has hit great form after a long lean period.

Re: $150K(+H) Bangalore/$50K(+H) Pune Challenger, Nov.12-25, 2018

So far I seem to be luckier as watched full first set of Mukund's match. Then, switched to Saki match and he wraped up the third set easily. :D

[R2] (WC) Saketh Myneni (IND,315) d. Youssef Hossam (EGY,483) 61 36 63


Now, back to Mukund. :D

Mukund plays an excellent tie break to win the first set 76(5).

Saki up a break leading 4-1 in the third set.

Re: $150K(+H) Bangalore/$50K(+H) Pune Challenger, Nov.12-25, 2018

Mukund was broken and Kavcic served for the set at 5-4 but Mukund broke back for 5-5. Held for 6-5. Then, he has 2 set points at 40-15 on Kavcic serve but could not convert and it goes into a tie break in first set. In the meantime, Saki seems to have given up the momentum from first set and lost th...

2 contrasting matches on. Mukund and Kavic had long opening service games where they won 3 breakpoints each and are at 1-1 .

On the other hand, Saki has breezed thru the first set 6-1 in 20 mins.

Yes, good to see 4 Indians in the second round when only 2 were expected to make it based on draw and ranking. Sumit and Mukund did well to beat much higher ranked players.

Re: $150K(+H) Bangalore/$50K(+H) Pune Challenger, Nov.12-25, 2018

Good couple of wins by Siddharth Vishwakarma. The national title seems to have spurred him on and increased his confidence.

Hope at least 1 of Mukund and Siddhant qualify for main draw if not both.
