Post by Sandeep »

Hope what globosport said is true. I haven't seen much of yuki though. But he has been winning quite few tournaments. Is he brother of Ankita and sanaa? I guess so.

A bit premature to start this thread, but it will be exciting to follow this kid's progress over the next few years. Clearly has about as much potential as Ramesh or Leander showed at the same age...actually, Karan Rastogi too had the same amount of promise (he was the top-ranked 13-year-old in the world, etc.).

Does anyone know what Yuki's schedule is? He needs to seriously start playing tournaments int he US so he can play top level competition and get tons of exposure.

Read one clipping in newspaper on Yuki & google search yielded this nes item on Yuki :-

Good to see a corporate taking up 13 year old tennis player & sponsering him at this stage.

Good to see the talented kid getting good coaching at early age.

Count me in as one who is never sold on NBTA trips for Indian kids.  I don't know why, but I have been a non-believer in that whole idea for a long time.  Still am.

Yuki hopefully has it in him to go places anyway, NBTA or not.  The training would not have hurt, of course - don't get me wrong;  just that we should not have very high hopes just because of NBTA trips.  How well he is coached in India, which coach works with him day-to-day, which (if any) coach accompanies him at tournaments, what gym/trainer he works out with in India, how much time he puts in, etc, will have a lot more effect.

I share the same opinion with Jay about Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy.  It is a two tiered place - one tier is for people like Maria Sharapova who get the A+ treatment and another tier is for the other players who are not considered to have the potential to become top players and they get the run-of-the-mill treatment.  Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy is still a good place to train.

Also, two weeks of training will do very little without follow-up.  Hopefully, his coach (or dad) makes good notes of what he does and and then follows a training and practising regime year around (or if the teaching at the NBTA is not good follows some other equally rigorous regime).

Here is a nice article last month in the Indian Express about Aditya Sachdeva, Yuki's coach (also for Ankita and Sanaa) -

Building a tennis feeder route

Aditya seems to be a modern-thinking coach.  Hope he can bring Yuki along well.

The list is pretty strong but he's the best player there by far.

There is an interesting Indian name - Balakrishnan from Australia. He is seeded second. It may be good for us watch his progress.
