Sasi's loss is absolutely shocking. Sid at least lost to a higher-ranked player!

Last week, Thai no. 1 Wishaya went on to win the title. So, now Sasi's loss to him in R2 appears less shocking.

This week, VSP and KU are playing there.

Nice win by KU over a higher ranked player.

Next,

Arjun somehow finds himself to be winning - be it singles or doubles. He has a true potential to become a top-100 doubles player but I hope he won't quit singles quite yet.

He lost in the doubles final .

[R1] Arjun KADHE (IND) / Lukas OLLERT (GER) 6-4 5-7 [16-14] Yurii DZHAVAKIAN (UKR) / Jurabek KARIMOV (UZB)
[QF] Arjun KADHE (IND) / Lukas OLLERT (GER) 4-6 6-3 [10-5] John LAMBLE (USA) / Evan SONG (USA) [2]
[QF] Arjun KADHE (IND) / Lukas OLLERT (GER) 6-4 7-6(5) Adam TAYLOR (AUS) / Jason TAYLOR (AUS) [3]
[F] Ruben GONZALES (PHI) / Hunter REESE (USA) [1] 5-7 6-4 [10-5] Arjun KADHE (IND) / Lukas OLLERT (GER)

Gonzales and Reese are both ranked in 200's in doubles. So, pretty good fight put up by Arujn and his partner there.

Next week Arjun and KU Singh will be in the main draw in Malaysia F2 futures while about 12-13 Indian players are in qualies including Dalwinder Singh and NitinKumar Sinha.
