Although this was only against ranked outside 1000, I am quite impressed that Aryan is play this type of tactical game at 18. And he showed that he had every shot there in the last few games hitting some power shots to mix with the drops and slices he was playing.
Agree with Sameer here. I only saw the match in bits and pieces but in the 6 or 7 games I saw, I was stunned by how authoritatively and decisively he as hitting some of those shots. Jeez, the dude is so talented. Just wait for him to get a bit more strong. He has all the shots. Like Manas, we have a good one here.

Yuvan Nandal lost against 8th seed Jasza Szajrych (POL,875) 67(4) 26 in the second round at the M15 in Bol, Croatia (clay) . So, only 1 ATP point for Yuvan here.

Aryan's second round match at Jamaica M15 is second on court 3 which will one and half to 2 hours from now. Looks like there is live streaming for this court too.

Aryan is playing top-800 players like they are no big deal. Made the QF at the Kingston M15 with a 61 64 win over Joshua Sheehy (USA,779). A couple of mistakes made him drop serve in the second game of the second set, and he was down 1-4, but then forced two breaks and took 5 games on the trot to win it. At times he looks like he is toying with the opponent. Perhaps he is playing top-600 type tennis already. So happy to see that. He will move up to just around 900 soon, up some 20+ spots.

Aryan and Adhithya Ganesan (USA) made it to the SF at the M15 in Kingston. Adhithya is also an 18 year old who reached as high as #24 in junior rankings late last year. In the pros, he is only ranked 1876 in singles and 2375 in doubles. Aryan's highest junior ranking was 39 but he is much higher in ATP rankings now, having crossed top-1000 in points with with two M25 QFs and an M15 final in singles already, and also an M15 final in doubles last week. These two had won the ITF J200 junior doubles title at Kuala Lampur late last year in the only time they played doubles together before, iirc... Good to see two very talented guys playing together.

They got going in style, upsetting the top seeds Jody Maginley (ANT) and Joshua Sheehy (USA), 63 36 [10-6] yesterday. They just beat Reece Falck (NZL) and Timothy Gray (AUS), 64 76(4) today. So these guys are unbeaten in 6 doubles matches together, and they play the third seeds the 3rd seeded Japanese pair, Kosuke Ogura and Leo Vithoontien, whom Aryan had upset last week in the company of Leo Borg.

Yuvan Nandal also had a good doubles QF today at the M15 in Bol, Croatia, in the company of Marino Jakic (CRO), but lost a tough one to Nikos Lehmann (ARG) and Nicolas Parizzia (SUI), 57 76(3) [6-10]. They had beaten a German pair, Paulo Knippling and Nino Toto, 46 46 in the R1.

And Aryan again plays Kiranpal Pannu ( whom he lost to in the final last week) in the QF this week. Hope Aryan gives at least a closer fight this time.

Aryan lost the singles SF 16 26 to Kiranpal Pannu (NZL,559) at the M15 in Kingston, Jamaica. That Kiwi guy is a bit of a matchup issue for Aryan, as he has good experience and is a quick enough player to be able to handle the good variety Aryan has in his shots. Aryan is probably tired too, after a lot of matches these two weeks.

But Aryan and Adhithya continued their winning ways in doubles with a 64 64 upset of the 3rd seeds, Kosuke Ogura (JPN)/ Leo Vithoontien (JPN). They play a British pair, Max Benaim and Daniel Vishnick next. The 4 points for the SF last week and the 8 points for the final today are enough to move Aryan up almost 400 spots from his current ranking of 1649.

The Indian and Indian-American "Double AA energizer bunny battery" Aryan and Adhithya won the doubles title at the Kingston M15 beating Max Benaim and Daniel Vishnick of Britain, 61 64. I saw some portion of the match, and was stunned at all the doubles skills the two guys displayed. Terrific stuff that I couldn't believe was coming from a pair of 18 year olds. Aryan has added 4 and 15 points to his current doubles point total of 9, and will move up from #1642 to just below #1100 on June 10, the next ranking date after this coming Monday (or higher, if he plays doubles next week also at Kingston)

Three Indians qualified into the M15 in Monastir, Tunisia (Hard) today. 9th seeded 18-year old, Rushil Khosla (IND,1890) beat a Niggerian, American and Argentinian in straight sets to make the main draw. The big upset win was by the 11th seed Abhinav Sanjay Shanmugam (IND,1956) over the #1 seed Grigoriy Lomakin (KAZ,813), 61 46 [12-10] ... Unranked Lohithaksha Badrinath (IND,ITF-1521) upset the 12th seed Mohammad Alkotop (JOR,1999), 64 62 in Q3... 16th seed Rohan Mehra (IND,2059) lost a close one in Q3, 16 64 [7-10] to Patrick Schoen (SUI,1230). Manish Suresh Kumar (IND,915) is a direct entry to the main draw there. So, four Indians are in the main draw, which was unexpected, as none of the three qualifers were seeded top-8 to qualify in.

At the M15 in Bol, Croatia (Clay), Junior Exempt Yuvan Nandal (IND,1464) has a tough first round against the 4th seed Luka Mikrut (CRO,509). he is also playing doubles with Daniel Verbeek of Netherlands.

Aryan Shah (and his doubles partner last week, Ind-Am Adhithya Ganesan) are at the M15 in Kingston, Jamaica... Main draw is not out yet.

Aryan did not get any favors from the draw this time. He plays the top seed Peter Bertran (DOM,676) in the first round. Adhithya plays a 4th seeded Japanese.

All three of our 18 year olds are playing top-4 seeds this week... Aryan, Yuvan and Rushil in three different ITF M15s.

At the Monastir M15, qualifier Rushil Khosla plays 4th seed Jacob Bradshaw (NZL,550)... Qualifier Abhinav Sanjeev Shanmugam plays a wildcard from Mexico, Alvaro Garcia... (Q) Lohithaksha Badrinath plays Tiago Pereira (POR,736). Manish Sureshkumar plays 8th seed Aziz Ouakaa (TUN,731).

Yuvan lost to Luka Mikrut, 36 36... Mikrut is 2 years older at 20 and also was a top-40 junior like Yuvan. I saw parts of the match and Yuvan seemed to be playing quite well, but Mikrut is just that much more advanced. It is a learning process for Yuvan. He is probably playing at a top-1000 level but many baby steps remain. His shots have power, which is a good sign.

M15 Kingston, Jamaica

Aryan Shah (IND, 922 ) d P. Bertran (DOM, 676) 6-7(4), 6-4, 6-2

Great win for Aryan who appears to be taking the next step up. Bertran was the top seed, so his draw should also open up somewhat.

Who cares for the favors from the draw? Top seed or bottom weed, it is all the same for Aryan. He took out Peter bertrand (DOM,676), 67(4) 64 62... This was a massive fight for 3 hours 11 minutes. Neither player could take more than 2 or 3 points in a row and many games, especially on Bertrand's serve, went to a lot of deuces. Aryan was 6 of 20 at break points and Bertrand 3 of 6, and that is why it even took that long. In the first set, Aryan was up twice, served for the set at 5-3, got broken twice by Bertrand to 5-6 and then Aryan had to break him once more to send it to a TB. He got a mini back with a delectable drop shot to even it at 3-3 in the TB but an iffy line call did not go in his favor and he was down 4-5... Bertrand took two points on his serve to take the set. At that point it was 39 points for him and 38 for Aryan... Later, after 4-4 in the second set, it was 82 points each. From then on Aryan took over, as he broke Bertrand just on time and served it off for one set apiece. He ran away to a 5-1 lead, and Bertrand held on by the skin of his teeth through 6 deuces and 3 match pts to hold once more, to 5-2... Aryan was up 40-15 and finally finished it at his 5th match point. Great fight, that left both the guys quite tired, as we could see. But Aryan's accuracy to the lines in rallies was stunning even when he was so tired at the end of the match. Great win.

One more ATP point. If he has some energy left, the draw has opened up for him. It is great that he is not playing doubles this week. Hopefully he can recover by tomorrow and make a run. Aryan is at #885 in live rankings (next ranking is on June 10th) and he is 23rd among players under 19

Yes, draw has opened up for him. No seed left in his quarter of the draw and the highest seed left in his half is 3rd seed Joshua Sheehy whom Aryan beat comfortably last week.

Aryan is up against a qualifier next.

At M15 Kingston, Jamaica

[R2] Aryan Shah (IND,922) vs. (Q) Aurel Ciocanu (CAN, ITF-457)

Only Abhinav Sanjeev advanced to second round with a 63 76(4) win and will meet 6th seeded Portugese next. Manish took the first set against 8th seed but lost the next 2 and Rushil was decent in 46 36 loss against 4th seed.
