[R1] (7) Ramkumar Ramanathan (IND,149) l Tobias Kamke (GER,199) 46 64 46

Yes, at least this was a tough fight unlike his last 3 losses which were tame losses. Hope he gets back to winning ways soon.

Welcome back jai_in_canada.
Thanks, Suresh. I love this group that is so well-informed, insightful and passionate about tennis. Unfortunately i haven't been that excited about results - although RamK, Yuki, Divij and Bops have lifted my spirits somewhat recently.
