Purav lost a close 3-setter in the singles Q1.

He and Divij are seeded third in doubles, and will play an Argentine pair in R1. In R2, they are drawn to play either a wildcard or a qualifier pair: good draw.

Purav has signed up for Harsh Mankad's web-based platform for managing tennis training and career planning Tenicity.com

Jeevan has signed up for it a couple of days ago. Interesting!

They play a lucky-loser pair in the QF. Potential SF opponent is Gerald Meltzer/Ruan Roelofse.

Nice work by Purav/Divij to make the SF. Their potentially tough opponents are knocked out too!

Came back from a set and two breaks down to win our semifinals match against Lapentti and Maytin
That is a great comeback. Very happy to see this pair back to winning ways.
