Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup - Qatar

Brazil look like the best team. England and France seem like the next best. I think the winner will come from one of these 3. The US is one of the 7 undefeated teams so far!

Re: Golf World Rankings of Indians

I'm not sure that gate revenues for golf is the key driver for their bigger purses. The TV revenues are likely higher as the bigger networks give more airtime to golf than tennis at least in the US. The biggest reason for more money in golf is that it is much more popular among executives and hence ...

Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup - Qatar

^^^^Agree. I think they can easily match up with Netherlands all over the field. The only weakness of the team is that they don't have a good striker (and aren't particularly good off the set plays either) and so they don't score as many goals as they should. Against Wales they had 67-33 possession ...

Re: Golf World Rankings of Indians

It will be interesting what will happen to the LIV tour if Trump somehow flames out as a presidential candidate (or just kicks the bucket). Seeing how many LIV events are on Trump courses, it's primary value to the Saudi's is likely courting Trump (as a legal bribe in effect). The tour has almost no...

Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup - Qatar

Well the US finally scored a goal to win a match and beat Iran 1-0 to qualify for the R-16. Up next is the Netherlands. The US has the quality to match Netherlands but the issue with them is to find a goal somehow....

Re: Golf World Rankings of Indians

Dustin Johnson also allegedly received $125 MM as signing bonus from LIV golf, so might be among the highest earning athletes in the world in 2022!

Re: Mens hockey world cup 2023

It is all relative. This would be around 1% of what Qatar has allegedly spent to host the football world cup...

Re: Golf World Rankings of Indians

Anirban had a sensational year in money terms, as he won over $3MM on the PGA tour (which may be his highest ever) and then went ahead and won a similar amount on the LIV tour. Also, it's quite likely he received a signing bonus as well, so he may have generational wealth at this point given the cra...

Re: Chess: World Team Championship 2022, Jerusalem

Given that China will also be there, we would likely not be gold favorites in any case.

This is a measure that FIDE uses. I suspect that we would be up there with the larger numbers as well. Looks like e we are 3rd in the November Open country rankings.

Re: Chess: World Team Championship 2022, Jerusalem

Based on the top 10 player rankings per country, India is 4th in the world behind Russia, US, and China in a “sport” that has well over a hundred countries participating with locally born players. That is arguably the best ranking for us in any sport.

Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup - Qatar

Arguably the US should have won both their matches so far. However, they are lacking a good striker, so will need to score against Iran. I don’t doubt that they have more quality than Iran who will likely sit back like Wales and look to attack on the counter against the US.

Re: Asia-Australia ATP Challengers 2022

I don't know how much value there is being in India #1 given how poor his ranking is although I suppose it plays a part in Davis Cup or Asian Games selection. Otherwise, it is getting to the point of not being noteworthy much as most people don't care about who is Pakistan #1 or Bangladesh #1.

Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup - Qatar

I have always liked Brazil’s style of play, so will be rooting for them to do well. Also hopefully USMNT does well as they have a talented team with most of their top players playing in the top 5 European leagues. Also US clubs (I.e., MLS) have 36 players in the WC which is 6th most after the big 5 ...

Re: Asia-Australia ATP Challengers 2022

Both Watanuki and Shelton went on to win their respective challengers, so Ramk and Prajnesh lost to in form players. Hopefully, that means our guys are in decent form and do well this week!
