Ramk is an absolute terror on the doubles court. Pretty much he is winning with whoever he is playing with. I wonder if he will be our next great doubles ace (top 10/top 5 etc.)

I think it will become too long a thread if we discuss all challengers in one thread. If someone wants to come and check the thread later it becomes too unwieldy. So, I think we can stay with the rule that if 2 or more Indian players play in one tournaments discuss it in an appropriate thread if the tournament is one country or 1 region. If there is only 1 Indian player discuss in player thread.

Our new pairing of VSP and Aniruddh Chandrashekhar had a good start this week with an upset win.

At St. Brieuc Challenger 80, France (Hard)

[R1] N. Vijay Sunder Prashanth (IND) / Aniruddh Chandrashekhar (IND) d. (4) Neil Oberleitner (AUT) / David Pichler (AUT) 57 72 10-8

Next,

[QF] N. Vijay Sunder Prashanth (IND) / Aniruddh Chandrashekhar (IND) vs. Theo Arribage (FRA) / Harold Mayot (FRA)

I think every tournament should have a thread. If people do not want to create new threads due to laziness that is another matter. But, otherwise, we should put the results in different threads. Personally, I do not like putting things together under European Challengers because my information need becomes something like who won Stella Artois in 2013 and if that tournament is put under Grasscourt Season or something like that then the search does not work out very well. I suppose search engines could find the name of the tournament under the thread and we can directly go to a page. Maybe it is just that I like different tournaments to be under their own thread. It just seems a bit more organized and easier to find things if we are searching manually.

Ok, so we stay somewhere between your view of opening a thread for every tournament and Sumanta's of one thread for all challengers for now. :D Everyone is of course free to open a thread for any tournament.

[QF] N. Vijay Sunder Prashanth (IND) / Aniruddh Chandrashekhar (IND) l. Theo Arribage (FRA) / Harold Mayot (FRA) 16 36 6-10

Sounds right! Basically what we have been following for a while. We go with a gut-feeling on when to have a combined/continuing thread and when to start a new tournament thread.
