You must have lifted that quote from "Miscellaneous Results for Germans" thread, right? That Begeman guy doesn't even have a thread of his own at sports-germany.com :D

Varma, no seriously ..... There are so many threads on that site regarding upcoming matchups of relatively unheralded German tennis players with Somdev, Yuki, Ramkumar, Sania etc. that are prefaced with reference to these Indian "former top 100" players that the poor Germans are quaking in their boots before they even show up on the courts. Trust me on this. They have very good scouts in the group just as we do whose job is to dig out these nuggets of precautionary tales.

Divij/Purav followed up with another upset win today against the 3rd seeds to reach the finals. I believe this is Divij's first CH final of the year.


[SF] Divij Sharan (IND) / Purav Raja (IND) 3-6 6-3 10-8 (3) Robert Galloway (USA) / Alex Lawson (USA)

[F] Divij Sharan (IND) / Purav Raja (IND) vs. (1) Hans Hach Verdugo (MEX)/ Hunter Reese (USA)

:goodluck: to our pair!

They lost in a close final.

At Indianpolis Challenger 80, USA

[F] Divij Sharan (IND) / Purav Raja (IND) l. (1) Hans Hach Verdugo (MEX)/ Hunter Reese (USA) 67(3) 63 7-10

Still second final of the year for both Purav and Divij and will help them move up a few places in the rankings.

Divij and Purav are the top seeds at the M25 Edwardsville ITF this week. There are no challengers in the US this week and they may have decided against traveling to Winnipeg for just one week. They will be back at the CH level next week at the Lexington CH.

They are facing the Basavareddy brothers in the opening round and the match is about to start.
