Adil won the doubles title but lost in the singles final.

At Smash Academy EGY 2 ITF Junior Tournament (Grade 2) (Clay)

[F] (7) Adil KALYANPUR (IND,158) l. (1) Yanki EREL (TUR,124) 46 67 (5)

[F] Adil KALYANPUR (IND) / Younes LALAMI LAAROUSSI (MAR) d. (2) Mert ALKAYA (TUR) / Yanki EREL (TUR) 76 (2) 61

Unfortunately Adil could not repeat his upset of top seed on first week. Still, his best week in junior career so far.
This should take him inside top 100 in the rankings. Needs 1-2 such performances this year to make sure of directly getting into junior slams main draw next year.

I think when the 1999 players go out, he'll make it easily!

He has 50 points to defend for Hongkong grade 2 SF in November. So, if he does not earn anything more this year, by my calculation he will be around 125 at the end of the year and around 60 when 1999 players go out. Can still make it to Australian open juniors main draw but difficult for other slams. 1-2 more solid performances this year ( at least SF at grade 2 / grade 1 ) will firmly put him inside top 50 in the early 2018 rankings and he can play all junior slams next year and get going on pro tour for the rest of the year.

Nice run to a grade 2 SF by Vikash Singh this week in Canada.

At 2017 Canadian U18 World Ranking Event, Grade 2

[R1] Vikash SINGH (IND,274) d. Karl POLING (USA,259) 64 61
[R2] Vikash SINGH (IND,274) d. (3) Boris KOZLOV (USA,179) 75 64
[QF] Vikash SINGH (IND,274) d. Cannon KINGSLEY (US,756) 76(4) 63

After a great run to the Orange Bowl under 16 final last year, Vikash's results this year have been underwhelming. Good to see him making this run her.

[SF] Vikash SINGH (IND,274) vs. Nicaise MUAMBA (CAN,573)

Muamba beat another Indian-American Sumit Sarkar in the QF.

Excellent from Vikash Singh to make a G2 final in Canada, including a win over the 3rd seed along the way.

Vikash lost in the final, good run never the less

[F] Vikash SINGH (IND,274) l Trey Hilderbrand (USA, 92) 2-6 4-6

On another note, the Indian origin girl Natasha Subhash won the girls title of this event :-)

Yes, good run by Vikash after a long time. This will help him move up to around 180 in the ITF junior rankings. He will need to play few more tournaments this year and try to bring his ranking up about 50 spots more which will ensure that he can play in junior slams next year.

Problem is he seems to be playing tournaments only in North America where higher level junior events are fewer and the competition is tough. Needs to come to Asia to play a few tournaments. But, I guess that may be financially not possible for Vikash.

17 year old Digivijay Pratap Singh has made the grade 3 final in Malaysia. None of the other Indians there could go past third round. These are Digvijay's results this week so far -

At 30th Sarawak Chief Minister's Cup (II) ITF Junior Circuit (Grade 3)

[R1] (3) Digvijay Pratap SINGH (IND,166) bye
[R2] (3) Digvijay Pratap SINGH (IND,166) d. Arthur Craig PANTINO (PHI,384) 61 64
[R3] (3) Digvijay Pratap SINGH (IND,166) d. Han-Chih LIN (TPE,394) 63 63
[QF] (3) Digvijay Pratap SINGH (IND,166) d. Campbell SALMON (AUS,194) 62 67(4) 62
[SF] (3) Digvijay Pratap SINGH (IND,166) d. (2) Seita WATANABE (JPN,119) 57 75 63

Next,

[F] (3) Digvijay Pratap SINGH (IND,166) vs. Rinky HIJIKATA (AUS,223)

Digivijay lost in the final.

At 30th Sarawak Chief Minister's Cup (II) ITF Junior Circuit (Grade 3)

[F] (3) Digvijay Pratap SINGH (IND,166) l. Rinky HIJIKATA (AUS,223) 67(5) 36

Still this run will get Digvijay inside top 150. He is another one who is getting close to appearing in junior slams next year. He will play a grade 2 in Thailand next week where Siddhanth Banthia is the defending champion and the top seed.

I don't think Digivijay Singh is concentrating on Pro circuit much as a 17 yo. junior player should be. He has only played in a couple of ITF Futures matches at the qualifying level.

He is playing a G4 event next week in ATLANTA.

Thanks, Dinesh. Again Vikash should not be playing at grade 4 level any more. It will not help boost his ranking much nor his game. But, being confined to North America is restricting his choices. Ideally, he should have come to Asia now and played those grade 2/ grade A tournaments which are available there.

Hope he plays the big tournaments in US in December ( Eddie Herr/Orange Bowl) and makes a splash there.

Atlanta is short drive from Hilton Head. He may be going there with the academy coaches and other players (in the team bus)..But I agree that he shouldn't be playing G4 at this point..
