Re: Davis Cup 2020- India

The Davis Cup has been a lost cause for a long time. Even before the recent changes made to the format, it was in decline. My friends who are hard core tennis fans have no idea who and when the US plays. They should do something similar to the Ryder Cup and have it every 2 years. Most of the time th...

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

RamK loses once again to Broady. 6-7, 2-6. Just when I think he is in great form to win his first career challenger, he comes up short yet again! :mad:

Re: Davis Cup 2020- India

PG struggling against a guy ranked in 400s. :-( Rankings mean nothing when it’s taken into context. PG is a journeyman playing near the end of his career while his opponent is a young up and comer who will be moving up the rankings in short order. I honestly would have been pleasantly surprised had...

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Sumit is playing the Szczecin challenger. He plays the 8th seed Stefano Travaglia in the first round. Will be pleasantly surprised if Sumit pulls off the upset.

Re: Cassis/ Rennes Challenger, France (Hard), Sept. 5 -18, 2021

Nice to see the doubles win but still bummed about the loss in singles. All of RamK’s recent losses have been winnable.
He’s still young but wondering when that elusive first challenger title will take place.

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Sumit loses 5-7, 3-6. Match filled with unforced errors from Sumit. He was up 4-2 in the first set and fell apart after that. Had numerous break chances in the second set but was only able to convert 1 break point.

Re: US Open 2021

Well, now that the Indians are all out of the US Open, my overall grade for this year’s tournament for the Indians would be a D. Only Bopanna won multiple rounds. Everyone else pretty much had a dismal showing. Also, absolutely zero participation from Indian juniors this year. The future looks bleak...

Re: Cassis/ Rennes Challenger, France (Hard), Sept. 5 -18, 2021

Did Ram enter the tournament late? Wondering why he had to play qualies as there are a few other players with lower ranking who received direct entry.

Quite depressing Sameer. Plus we have zero juniors competing to my knowledge.
