Re: Alicante Challenger (Hard), Oct 11-17, 2021.

Good performance by Balaji! Seemingly played better than his career peak. Prajnesh reached a new career high when he was 29, so why not Balaji who is just a little older at 31. Bala is 31.5 yrs old. He had already quit singles 4-5 yrs ago - so almost has no rank. Even if he has to focus on singles,...

Re: Pre-US Open ATP/WTA tournaments

^^^ The problem is that the server where I had all those documents was replaced at the University and the old web server folders did not get copied (actually it must be there somewhere, but as it is not University business, I haven't pushed the IT support to go hunt it all down for me). I do have l...

Re: Pre-US Open ATP/WTA tournaments

Yeah is there a way to revive TennisIndia.org. I had mentioned about this 3 years back on a misc thread about a social media version of TennisIndia but some of us didnt come across as serious enough. Irrespective would be really nice to have TennisIndia - some of the content at least revived. It wa...

Re: Pre-US Open ATP/WTA tournaments

What does running a Twitter handle entail? I'm willing to do it, as I'm quite active now on Twitter on several topics. PKB: You can refer to our dedicated discussion between Rajiv, Jay, me on this exact topic 4 years ago: http://www.sports-india.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=219135. Unfortunately w...

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

I think as we discussed in that Ankita discussion a month back - we will start seeing buzz around mens tennis again on our forum. Hopefully Prajnesh can also drop his rankings by November and then it should all be upward growth from there on for an year or two with wins over higher ranked opponents ...

Re: Davis Cup 2020- India

It would be tough for our singles players to win against their #2 Otto. Hopefully one of them can, it would be a good win. Otto was an Orange Bowl champion, defeating Zane Khan in the finals. He reached 25K finals in my neighborhood last week - has a top-200 win already. His career trajectory is sim...

Re: Pre-US Open ATP/WTA tournaments

Yeah there were weeks when there were NO updates. We all wondered what happened. Then they got more and more infrequent as the internet grew. I remember a pic of Leander sitting in front of a PC with your website on it. Maybe cutting a ribbon to inaugurate (?). Could you please repost? Yeah is ther...

As Mukund also opted out, it was between Saki and Rawat. Rawat is the higher ranked but Saki reached the finals in the Indian futures - so I guess a fair call whichever player they took.

Re: Davis Cup 2020- India

So it is official indeed - both Sumit Nagal and Mukund Sasikumar have opted out. While they might face some initial criticism - for the sake of India (in my personal twisted patriotic view to minimise influence of an inept association), I am glad they are changing the status quo and setting the prec...

Re: Prajnesh Gunneswaran thread

Lets use UTR/ELO or do a bit more data check (till November which is when we will start seeing our players creating upset wins on a weekly basis) (R1) Prajnesh and Hugo are ranked the same as per UTR and Hugo has reached 2 semis in the last 4 challenger events he played. Hugo is French and is playin...

Re: US Open 2021

He will most likely from October. All those opponents from 160-230 who were bucketed as lower ranked would soon be categorised as higher rank, which will hopefully make him to go to the top in our chart and build some support. Lets see.

Re: India in England, summer of 2021

Get SKY for Rahane/Pujara, Ashwin for Jadeja, Thakur for Ishant. If the pitch is dry, get Jadaja for one of Bumrah/Shami/Siraj on a rotational basis. I really hope it happens. Unfortunately Kohli is rigid in his 5 bowler policy which is fine but he should at least optimise those 5 in line with their...
