[Q1] (1) Sasi Kumar Mukund (IND,289) vs Ergi Kirkin (TUR,539)

Mukund should not have a problem entering the main draw and the matches for the qualifiers are against Enrico Dalla & Cristian Jianu.
Then in R2 he could face a higher/lower seeded player, but the top 4 seeds are ranked in between the 140 to 180 bracket, and he has a much better record in recent weeks against such players, so a good chance for Mukund to do well here

Mukund wins the second set 64 after losing the first on the same score.
This is turning out to be much difficult match for Mukund than i thought against a 523 ranked Turkish opponent.

Mukund won the match eventually, prevailing 63 in the final set, not a convincing win though ,which took 3 sets to complete and probably could be due to traveling through continents. and taking time to adjust

In R1 he is up against 410 ranked Rumanian Filip Jianu

Yes, Mukund started slowly but after losing the first set he managed to win his match ... In the first round, he is facing a former junior top-5 Romanian Filip Cristian Jianu.

At €46.6K+H Koblenz Challenger 2020, Germany

[Q1] (1) Sasikumar Mukund (IND,282) bt Ergi Kirkin (TUR,539) 46 64 63

[R1] (Q) Sasikumar Mukund (IND,282) vs Filip Cristian Jianu (ROU,410)

After yesterdays shaky start Mukund seems to have settled down and scores a straight sets 63 62 win over his Rumanian opponent to move into the 2nd round.

Next up is the 15th seed and similarly ranked 277 ranked Lucas Miedler.

Mukund should fancy his chances against the Austrian.

Yes, very good dominating win over a talented junior player.

At €46.6K+H Koblenz Challenger 2020, Germany


[R1] (Q) Sasikumar Mukund (IND,282) d. Filip Cristian Jianu (ROU,410) 63 62

Next,

[R2] (Q) Sasikumar Mukund (IND,282) vs. (15) Lucas Miedler (AUT,231)

Mielder has played only 3 singles matches so far this year and lost all 3 . So, Mukund should have the edge in this match.

By the way, is it just me, or has ATP site's scoreboard flash app gone away? I can't find a scoreboard app anymore....

Yes, it's gone ... Why? A big question ... So now I have started using mobile apps to follow live scores.

Yes, the same ATP app ( downloaded by me earlier ) works perfectly on mobile. The link does not appear anywhere on ATP official site.

I do not know why they keep changing things which are working fine. The refurbished ITF site is also crap. Earlier the current week's tournaments were at least visible on one page. Now, you have to scroll much. Also results are not displayed in simple format as used to.

It is a worldwide problem at all websites. People have just completely forgotten how to make a good web page (for anything). It is already a lost skill, and worse still, nobody cares. Nobody complains, and everybody just goes on using annoying websites.

Mukund is up 7-6(1) 3-3 on Miedler... And he broke Miedler after a couple of deuces and BPs... Both of them hold... 76 54 and Mukund serving for the match. Steady tennis with great shots to the chalk. I love watching Mukund play. 12 shot rally, 9-shot rally, service winner, service winner. And it's done at 40-0.

[R2] (Q) Sasikumar Mukund (IND,282) d. (15) Lucas Miedler (AUT,231), 76(3) 64

A really good upset win for mukund. Now he runs into the second seed, Yannick Hanfmann (GER,149)
