Excellent week here for our South Indian express. They face top seeds Santiago Gonzalez/Wesley Koolhof (Artem's regular partner). Hope they get their 3rd CH title this year. :goodluck:

Really an impressive run on the clay after the grass court season.

Balaji finally breaks through into the top-100, at 99 in the live rankings, while Vishnu rises to 90.

Bala and Vishnu lost in the final.

At €127K+H Sparkassen Open, Braunschweig, Germany (Clay)

[F] Sriram Balaji (IND) / Vishnu Vardhan (IND) l. (1) Santiago Gonzalez (MEX) / Wesley Koolhof (NED) 36 36

Still a very good run by Bala and Vishnu in a big challenger.

At SkiStar Swedish Open ATP 250, Bastad, Sweden (Clay)

Balaji and Vishnu have won the first set and are up by a break in the second set.
Melzer and Petzschner come back strongly in the second to break our pair twice and bag the second set at 6-4.
On to the Match tie break now. Balaji and Vishnu lost it 8-10. They were neck to neck up until 7-7, when SB/VV lost couple of points to give the lead to their opponents. Even though they pulled one point back, in the end they fall short.
I believe that this is a match which SB/VV should have pocketed easily being a set and a break up. An opportunity lost. :-(

[R1] Sriram Balaji (IND) / Vishnu Vardhan (IND) l. (PR) Jurgen Melzer (AUT) / Philipp Petzschner (GER) : 7-5, 4-6, 8-10

The top-seeds Vishnu and Bala lost in two tie-breaks against Spanish pair ... I am surprised to see that they r sticking to play on clay instead travelling for big Asian challengers or playing in North America hard court season.

[QF] (1) N. Sriram Balaji (IND)/ Vishnu Vardhan (IND) l Carlos Boluda-Purkiss (ESP)/ Miguel Semmler (ESP) 67(5) 67(5)

Bala and Vishnu r playing in a German challenger ... A tough field as they r unseeded and playing against Belgian pair.

At $150K+H Pullach Challenger 2018, Germany

[R1] N. Sriram Balaji (IND)/ Vishnu Vardhan (IND) vs Sander Gille (BEL)/ Joran Vliegen (BEL)

Another early loss for Bala and Vishnu against Belgian pair ... I think, they will sooner move to the hard courts in US or Asia after completing their training with playing in European challengers.
