Re: French Open 2022

Not sure that US 15K is a huge paycheck although it is more than he could win in challengers. Relatively, speaking the huge paycheck is in qualifying into the main draw ($60k or more), so it would have made some sense to practice a bit so that he had a chance to win. Hopefully, he'll do that for the...

Re: French Open 2022

Actually a fit Sumit Nagal could have a chance at beating a 150+ Argentine on clay. However, Sumit is coming back from a 6 month injury break and perhaps has a further niggle, so it seems like a long shot for him. Yuki has the quality to compete but again his fitness and his playing style (hitting a...

Re: BWF Thomas & Uber Cup Finals

Wow, amazing win by team India!

Indonesia has very strong doubles teams, so the onus will be on our singles players to win at least 2 matches with Satwik-Chirag pulling off an upset. It's a long shot but we do have a realistic chance to win.

Re: European Challengers 2022

Unclear what Yuki is planning with respect to singles. At first, I thought he probably wouldn't want to play singles on clay. However, I think he will use one of PRs to play French Open qualies, so getting some singles practice on red clay would have been helpful as playing singles is different than...

Re: US PGA Tour 2021-22

Anirban finishes T-6. Moves up to 44 in Fedex Cup rankings and wins over $300K. This is certainly shaping to be one of his best years on the PGA tour.

Re: European Challengers 2022

[QF] Ramkumar Ramanathan (IND) / Yuki Bhambri (IND) vs. (1) Austin Krajicek (USA) / Hugo Nys (MON) 6-3, 7-6(5)

Quality win over ATP quality pair by Yuki and Ramk. Nice win by RamK in singles as well.

Re: European Challengers 2022

Lee was a special talent. We can't compare the current crop with him. And Lee-Hesh in doubles was how great doubles combinations should play. And they had some strong rivals in the Aussies, Swedes and so on. Again can't compare their doubles with the current lot. Personally, I like watching doubles...

Re: US Green Clay Challengers, April 2022

This isn't an unusual pattern for RamK. He will turn his form around at some point - perhaps in the grass season. He does have longer slumps than most challenger level players but makes up for it by playing more than just about anybody.

Re: European Challengers 2022

If their chemistry is right, tennis-wise I expect Yuki-RamK to be ATP tour regulars in doubles (i.e., each with top 50 doubles ranks and higher if they click as a pair). Yuki completely dominates from the backcourt and in his service returns at the challenger level doubles that I have seen but his s...

Re: Virat Kohli Thread

I respect Kohli as well not just for his batting prowess but also for turning our cricket team into a professional outfit in terms of fitness, preparation, focus etc. which is needed for sustained sporting excellence. However, I do think he is now on the downside of his career, so hopefully can cont...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

In the US, masking is way down especially after the federal travel mask mandate got struck down by a Trump appointed judge. I think most folks are treating it as a similar risk as the flu in the current population which is mostly vaccinated or otherwise immunized...
