Let's hope it delivers what he wants from it.

He seemed to get something from it last year as he came out strong in the beginning of the year. Hope it has a similar impact this year as well...

Looks like Yuki is working with someone who with Somdev on keeping fit. Hopefully, the results will show on court.

Abhimanyu Singh must be a good one, knowing how Somdev used to be. I liked this in the article, from Abhimanyu -
“Somdev was a machine, but Yuki wins his matches on skill. So he needs to be pushed,” he says. “Sometimes when he feels fatigued, I tell him ‘Somdev could have done this.’ And then Yuki starts working.”
Haha!

He’s considering whether or not to play the Challenger next week in Bangalore, depending on how he does here in Pune.
This sounds silly, he should aim to go as deep aa possible in both weeks.

^^^^ I have to think that he was just saying that if he goes very deep this week and feels any physical issues he might not take the risk of playing Bangalore. The reporter probably paraphrased it. Obviously he is looking to go deep this week - there is no reason not to!

If he thinks his body will not hold, then he should possibly rest. If not, go for it.

I forget everything. Did Yuki play the last week or two? Otherwise, it is weird if he is thinking of resting at Bengaluru. That must mean he has some dodgy body part.

Prasen, I moved your last post to Yuki's thread as it concerns the earlier discussion in this thread.

No, Yuki did not play in the last 2 weeks. So, it is all the more surprising when he says that if he goes deep in Pune, he may withdraw from Bangalore. His body should be able to take 2 full weeks of load at least at this level. These are the last 2 weeks of this year and he needs to try to take advantage of a relatively weaker field and improve his ranking to the extent possible.

Thanks much Sameer. Sorry for being scatter-brained. If he does withdraw from Bangalore it will mean he has some injury and it is not just precautionary or due to exhaustion. Hope he wins the title at both places.

It's possible that he may withdraw from Bangalore if he makes the final in Pune as that would mean he would have played 5 matches in 5 days. The number of matches does count (especially without intervening rest) for a "overuse" type injury such as a tennis elbow. For example, you could easily play 5 weeks in a row if you lose in the first round every week.

That makes sense. Basically, only case where it makes sense is where you already have an injury or have figured out that your body cannot take more than a week of you going deep. But, if you cannot play two weeks --- and you will have to accept what your body can and cannot take --- it means all the talk of how much stronger and fitter you are is hogwash. You may be slightly stronger and fitter, but a pro should be able to play two weeks back to back. Otherwise, you are basically extremely fragile.

When Andy Murray played Yuki at the Aus Open, he was surprised by the quality of his play and suggested he should be ranked much higher, but “I don’t know how hard he works”. There is no substitute for the hard grind. I wish Yuki had paid more attention to this aspect when he was a teenager. He loves to play tennis, but in order to do so at the highest level you simply have to put in the hard yards in the gym and elsewhere. Somdev and Leander are the two Indian players who have been really committed to this. I think even Vijay and Ramesh didn’t have the same commitment to the physical side, depending more on their innate skills.

Perhaps belied by his genial nature, Vijay did work reasonably hard at his game based on the fitness standards of his time.
From a 1973 article on SI:
At home, as they are now to begin the Asian circuit, Vijay and Anand follow a standard routine, rising at 5:30 AM to swallow two eggs beaten in milk, followed by a three-mile run. Then it is back inside for a more normal breakfast and, finally, tennis - sometimes throughout a 110 day until dark. Though Mr. and Mrs. Amritraj always thoughts their first son would be the best player of the three, dedication has begun to play off for Vijay
