Divij and his partner lost a close semi-final at Marrakech yesterday

At €501K Grand Prix Hassan II 2018, Marrakech, Morocco

[SF] Divij Sharan (IND)/ Jan-Lennard Struff (GER) l. (1) Nikola Mectic (CRO)/ Alexander Peya (AUT) 3-6, 6-3, 11-9.

That's still a good week for Divij who is growing from strength to strength.

Congrats to Divij who is at a career high of #41 this week! Unfortunately, it does not look like he could enter the Monte Carlo masters event, so no opportunity to move up this week.

One of the big names has to take a punt with Divij soon. Come on guys he deserves a break.

Divij/Matkowski is seeded 2nd at the Istanbul ATP and plays Albot/Basilashvili in R1. Easy match to start with but whatever happened to the guy Scott Lipsky???

Wonder whom Divij will find for RG.

Lipsky is playing Estoril open this week with Elrich. Lipsky is ranked only 78 in doubles now. So, not an ideal partner for Divij ( who is ranked 43) if he wants to play higher level tournaments. Matkowski is quite good but let us see if Divijs partnership with him is only for this week or long term.

TOPS: Divij in, Bhambri out
Yuki Bhambri’s decision not to participate in the Asian Games and instead concentrate on his professional career has resulted in the Sports Ministry dropping him from the list of athletes funded and supported under the Target Olympic Podium Scheme (TOPS).

Instead the Mission Olympic Cell (MOC), responsible for periodic review of performances and training, competition and equipment needs, has included 32-year-old doubles specialist Divij Sharan till the Asian Games. Divij is currently ranked 43 on the ATP doubles tour.

The committee also sanctioned ₹26.03 lakh as coach and physio expenses for Rohan Bopanna for 12 weeks. Weightlifter Sanjita Chanu, under suspension for a doping violation, has also been dropped from TOPS.

Unfortunate for Yuki. It seems to be a pretty tidy sum of funding he's having to sacrifice for choosing USO over Asian Games. Ideally a talented athlete should not be made to go through such circumstances.

Yeah, unfortunate for Yuki but I think he'll do just fine.
