These are our top 10 WTA ranking as of today -

195 Ankita Raina
200 Karman Thandi (CH)
388 Rutuja Bhosale (CH)
419 Pranjala Yadlapalli
576 Zeel Desai (CH)
663 Mahak Jain (CH)
683 Kanika Vaidya
704 Riya Bhatia
799 Snehadevi Reddy
828 Dhruti Venugopal

For the first time since 2008 ( when Sania and Sunitha were in top 200) , we have 2 players in top 200. Also 20 year old Karman, 22 year old Rutuja, 19 year old Zeel and 17 year old Mahak are all their career high ranking with 19 year old Pranjala only slightly below her career high. If these 5 players continue to progress over next couple of years, we can have 5-6 players in top 250 or 300 by then.

AITA should have picked either Zeel or Mahak for the Asian Games in place of Riya Bhatia who hasn't had much success this year, plus you should always want to support a talented junior player (Mahak) on cases like these.

It is worth taking a look at our top 5 ranked players this week in both men and women-

Men

107 Bhambri, Yuki
124 Ramkumar Ramanathan
146 Gunneswaran, Prajnesh
312 Sumit Nagal
316 Saketh Myneni

Women

195 Ankita Raina
215 Karman Thandi
280 Pranjala Yadlapalli (CH)
368 Rutuja Bhosale (CH)
562 Zeel Desai (CH)

It is the best phase in terns of rankings for quite a while.

In men, we have 3 players ranked in top 150 since more than 30 years I think and in women, we have 3 players in top 300 for the first time since 2007 when Sania,Sunitha and Shikha were all there. The first time both of these things have happened together.

Can we take the next step and get 3 in mens top 100 and 3 in womens top 150 in next couple of years ? I am getting greedy now. :D

It’s not greedy, actually in women’s we have quite a bit of younger presence that will take us through the next 4-5 years (top-250 level tennis) but it’s disappointing to note that none of the promising young men players have shown improvement - Sumit, Sasi and Arjun all seems to have hit an early wall in showing consistency. Other than Prajnesh (throughout the year) and RamK’s Newport success, men’s single has been a lackluster year for us.

These are our top 10 doubles rankings as of today -

38 Divij Sharan
39 Rohan Bopanna
60 Leander Paes
72 Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan (CH)
89 Purav Raja
106 N. Sriram Balaji
115 Vishnu Vardhan
186 Arjun Kadhe
230 Saketh Myneni
262 N. Vijay Sunder Prashanth

So, Divij becomes India #1 for the first time in his career this week. However, difference between him and Rohan is only 45 points. So, if Rohan wins a round at Paris masters this week, he will again become India #1. Divij has 100 points to defend from Bangalore challenger title still. Lets us see if he is coming back to defend that and try to keep that India #1 at the end of the year.

Anyway, it looks like a race in mens doubles for India #1 between Rohan and Divij , in womens singles between Ankita and Karman and probably in mens singles too between Yuki,RamK and Prajnesh.

As mentioned elsewhere, Rohan overtakes Divij to again become India #1 at rank 37 while Divij remains at 38.

In the meantime, in WTA rankings we again have our top 2 in top 200.

These are our top 10-

192 Ankita Raina
198 Karman Thandi
287 Pranjala Yadlapalli (CH)
366 Rutuja Bhosale (CH)
577 Zeel Desai
623 Mahak Jain (CH)
624 Riya Bhatia
785 Snehadevi Reddy
854 Sai Chamrthi
879 Sowjanya Bavisetti

3 of the the top 6 are at their career highs and other 3 too are quite close to it. Looking for all the top 6-7 to make an upward move in next few months. The Indian ITF series coming with 5 25k tournaments will be a great opportunity.

Right now, in the live rankings, Yuki is 126, Prajnesh is 128 and RamK is 130. Perhaps the first time ever that we have had 3 Indians between 125 and 130?
