Re: Davis Cup 2017 - India

Ok, I admit that I'm a borderline moron. Happy?

Re: World class players from India

I'm sorry that I proposed anything. If you don't get the general gist and continue to try to quantify it, then I'm sorry; I don't have a better way of presenting my view. Why don't you try instead to give your definitions and let me poke holes in it?

Dinapickwriters -- great that you absolutely disagree. Please present some thoughts behind your disagreement. It's always nice to hear multiple viewpoints. Thanks.

Re: World class players from India

Ok, then I'll accept 85% as the yardstick, but it maybe their career stat, not after attaining a world class status. And I wouldn't count losses against each other at that level. That'd be expected. But losing to even one of these 80-90% of the time, puts an asterisk in their undisputed status.

Re: Davis Cup 2017 - India

It's interesting to me the Jay-Prashant (Samarth and I) are, I think, saying the same thing, but stating their view in converse terms. In essence, everyone is saying that having a specialist doubles team ALL the time doesn't make sense. Right?

It does seem she was exhausted after playing lots of singles and double matches in last 2 weeks. It happens to most of the Indian players.
Aargh! :damn:

Re: Davis Cup 2017 - India

Fair enough Varma. Sadly, I think the next rung of our singles players is so low (or frequently injured) that even an unfit Rohan could still be better than any of them. At least he's standing on the court across the net. But, I'm equally happy to have a Saki in his place.

Re: World class players from India

If fundamentally we agree, then who am I to disagree with you? Glad that you see the bigger point. Yes, I was a bit too hard on my definition. But, Federer would be a definition of world class to me despite his losing record against Nadal. Bradman, Tiger Woods, Serena, Navaratilova, Kasparov, Janshe...

Yes, I remember your post regarding this. Well, how did he fare on the court? Regardless, I'm sticking to my choice, flab or no flab.

Re: World class players from India

Where and when did this argument morph into world class at a given time? I think I started the argument when I stated that we have one world class player today and that is PV Sindhu. Of course, someone could have been world class at some time. But, I want to focus on the present and project into fut...

Re: Davis Cup 2017 - India

Varma, I'm curious. What's your basis for saying that Rohan isn't match fit for singles? Every Indian player bar Ramkumar has proven to be unfit. Is Rohan really worse than Saketh, Yuki, Jeevan, etc.? I don't think so. I'll rather gamble on him than any of the alternatives. That he can play doubles ...

Re: Davis Cup 2017 - India

I would rather have Rohan play singles for India in Davis Cup. He is a good singles player. My team: Rohan, Ramkumar, Yuki for four singles with RK playing two. And pair either Yuki or Rohan with anyone for doubles. For the next 1-2 years, that anyone must be Leander, but it's unlikely to happen. I ...

Re: American hardcourt Challengers 2017

But, it's not Yuki's fault. He's so good.... I mean don't you know how good he is? I'm tellin y'all, he's definitely top 50 and he should be given a lifetime top 100 rank at minimum because he's so fine!!!! Why, he just beat Monfils a few weeks ago. He's that good!!!!! Modi's "achche din" will be he...

Maybe he's confusing Yuqi with Yuki. :D
