Yes, good couple of wins for Nitin.
Hopefully, Arjun will go deep (ie, win the title) this week.

Yes, nice win by Nitin over a 6 month older German who had more wins on futures than him on clay. This is his first futures QF. He is showing steady improvement in his game.

Best week of Nitin Sinha’s pro career. Great that he has joined Arjun in the singles QF with a hard-fought win over #951 Rosenkranz.

Since Nitin just turned 18 in February, I think he can still play juniors this year. I hope he plays the FO and Wimbledon junior tournaments. As the Asian junior champion, he still has some junior points available until the French Open. Maybe he should play another couple of Grade 1 tournaments to secure participation in the junior Slams. Of course it was a good decision to play in China this month, and his game has clearly taken many positive strides forward as a result.

Nitin will turn 19 in February this year, so he probably isn’t eligible for juniors anymore :oops:

Yes, Nitin is done with juniors.I think he should for a US college stint if he gets a decent university. Good results at futures level may help in that.
