Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

I was impressed by the new pacer Chetan Sakariya of the RR. Samson should certainly be playing for India in one of the formats or be the next choice after Pant. We have to move past Saha now.

Re: $80K Orlando ATP Challenger, April 12-19, 2021

Yuki can’t have access to gyms in the universities, or for that matter, even a Cisco gym as he’s not a student/ employee at those places. There may be tennis clubs that may give him special access or even the universities may do so. Cisco will not.

Re: Do the Indian Tennis players do better than their ranking at home ?

Found an old paper on this: Home advantage is a pervasive phenomenon in sport. It has been established in team sports such as basketball, baseball, American football, and European soccer. Attention to home advantage in individual sports has so far been limited. The aim of this study was to examine h...

Re: Do the Indian Tennis players do better than their ranking at home ?

Yes, you did do it for a couple years. And, I appreciate it. I will pitch in by doing an analysis too. The good thing is all the data is here; I don’t need to go hunting for it. Thanks you for indulging me.

Re: Do the Indian Tennis players do better than their ranking at home ?

Take all the results and just calculate the number of times our players have beaten higher ranked players in total. The data is all here. It is...

Re: Karman Kaur Thandi

Re: ITF India Futures (4 weeks) March 2021

This may be the worst, but I don’t think it is unusual. I know I’m in minority here. I’ve followed this aspect very closely over the years. In fact, somehow the draws put Indians against Indians in early rounds at a highly “suspicious” rate in home tournaments. But, I may be wrong here. Anyway, I do...
