What happened to Saurav Panja. He was a journey man in futures circuit and then one day he vanished from the scene.

He last played doubles in 2009 March, it seems. His career high was 863 in 1999 though. So, pretty much a journeyman. Source: ATP site

One word: injuries.

Here is an article on him serving as Hingis' hitting partner at the Sunfeast Open or whatever it was called. Article on Panja

I am delighted someone else is digging up old threads and perhaps reading them! Serve up some oldies but goldies folks.
