This was a breakthrough tour for Manish in Sri Lanka. With the upset of the third seed and the win against the 6th seed, he also showed that a top-600 ranking will be legit too. These weren't the toughest three futures, but not the cheapest ones either. His upcoming top-600 ranking would have made him a third seed in the three events -- so 34 points from the sequence, which seems to be the most points by anybody in the field, is a job very well done!

He will also be top-10 in the world among under-19 players in the world, in a couple of weeks. It's all very positive. He needs to keep the momentum going, and work even harder to go further up. He will need to serve a few more aces than he did this week, for instance (he served only 3 aces in the 5 matches, though he had only 8 double faults, which means he was pretty steady). The second serve winning percentage was 36% in the upset of the third seed earlier, and 44% today against the 6th seed, but 60% or more against the three other easier opponents. Those are the kind of things I look at, to see how effective the serve might be. One just cannot live without a good one these days, in the upper levels of ATP. I have not seen him play, to know what kind of a serve he has, but I guess he will have to make it stronger without losing accuracy.

Thanks Suresh for starting this well deserving thread for Manish ... I have updated scores in your first post, hope you don't mind.
I think, he trains at Nvk Tennis Academy and his coach is listed as Sureshkumar (his father?).

Glad that Manish won his first title and breaks into the top 600. Up to #22 on 99 borns and later, and 3rd amongst the Asians!

Thanks, Vatsal. I hope he also gets to train at some academy abroad like RamK did early on if he has good financial support.

Vatsal, any idea whether Mr Sureshkumar (the father) was a tennis player or trained coach himself?

PKB, Coach Suresh Kumar is not Manish’s father. He has been coaching in chennai for more than 20 years.
