Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

My employer made an announcement today. One of our vendors who visited our office campus (from Seattle, no less!) had spent 3 full days here on our campus - from 2nd March to 4th March. He was mildly sick during that time already. Today he was tested positive!!! During his visit, he met with several...

Re: Indian Badminton Thread ...

Completely echo your sentiments, Atithee. If any, our guys should be begging these coaches not to leave. It's ridiculous that the system is not disciplining our players despite multiple coaches abandoning citing the same reason.Pretty pathetic and disgusting!

Re: Fed Cup Thread for India ..

It's a team event, so speculating of such a strategy completely makes sense.

Re: India in New Zealand 2020

Samson's case is similar to that of Nair. He is a Malayalee who grew up in Delhi. I think he started representing Kerala only after he gained fame in IPL.

Re: $162 K (+H) Bengaluru Challenger 2020

I would add Saketh to that list as well. He reached a career high of 113 (in 2016) and showed a lot of promise whenever he was injury free, although he too gets perennially injured just like Yuki. With his potent serve, he definitely had the potential to be in Top-100. That 5-set US Open 2016 R1 los...

Re: $162 K (+H) Bengaluru Challenger 2020

Very impressive wins from Sid and Sasi. The latter must be riding high on confidence. So far in 2020 he played 7 matches, all against players ranked higher than himself, with a record of 4-3. Wins against... Yoshihito Nishioka (71, CH 58) Duckhee Lee (235, CH 130) Paolo Lorenzi (116, CH 33) Blaz Kav...

Re: Sania Mirza Comeback - 2020

Shuai Zheng is also in singles final, which is played right before the doubles final. Hopefully she gets extended to 3 sets to maximize Sania's chances for what would be an wesome comeback title.

Re: The Dr Bhushan Sharma 2019 Indian Tennis Player Of the Year

Ankita maybe well behind Praj and Sumit if one goes by looking just at the spike in ranking, big wins etc. However, if you look at the resources a player had in hand and what they achieved with those, Ankita's achievements stand taller compared to the ones of her male counterparts.

Re: Sasi Kumar Mukund thread

Nice interview, Vatsal. He sounds a lot more philosophical for his age. Maybe it's the timing of the interview? Anyway, I am hoping that his upward swing continues into 2020 and that he gets to debut into one of the grandslam main draws.

Re: $54(+H) Pune Challenger, November 11-18,2019

But these lower level tournaments have much tougher fields in the US. However, they have easier fields available closer in Mexico and other Central/South American countries that are on par with Indian Challengers/Futures. For most of them it wouldn't make sense to travel all the way to India playing...

Re: European Masters and ATP Tournaments 2019

Quite a winnable R2 match for Bops & Shapo. I would give Sharan-Sitak duo a 50-50 chance against the experienced French pair. It will be awesome if both our teams can make it to R3.
