Sumit has now passed Prajnesh and has tied Leander for the highest singles ranking by an Indian! Next up is Somdev at number 62. Let’s go Sumit!

Watch this rally starting at 1:40:40 and the shot that helped setup the point and drew applause from Sumit' opponent... :clap:

Only in the live rankings. If he stays at that level in official ranking next Monday, we can say he has passed them or tied. This is just start of this week and Sumit will have to win at least 1 more round ( maybe more ) to stay at that live ranking of 73 where he is at now.

At Perugia Challenger 125, Italy (Clay)

[R2] (6) Sumit Nagal (IND,77) vs. (Q) Alessandro Giannessi (ITA,369)

Because availability is the only thing in player's control, and not the actual selection.
True, but the country is also involved. My opposition is not to O'Connell getting consideration. It is to the country's getting consideration. In this case, Australia could have picked him as the 4th one, but did not. If it was a country wit 7 or 8 players in the top 75 and could not take him, fine, but he was like 4th for most of the last couple of years in Australia and they didn't pick him for any tie.

But the Totallympics guys and you are correct in the end though. ITF can explain it away and give a 4th spot to the Aussies and nobody would really complain. I was kicking up a ruckus mostly because it was Australia. If it were some Croatia or Canada or Netherlands that I don't have anything against, I would have let it go. Actually I have nothing against AUS either, but thought I might as well gaslight the damn Aussies just for the heck of it! :) .... for beating us in cricket in every rare occasion when I pay attention and the match actually matters!

Yeah, clearly his back. The lady physio seemed to give him a lower back massage and then later came back to spray something and give some more taps to the back. Hopefully not connected to his hip issue from earlier for which he had surgery.

I don't know why he is playing doubles this week. He can use a day of rest tomorrow, but is scheduled to come and play an evening doubles match. Hopefully he will not exert there and would tank it (with apologies to his partner!)

^^^ His singles second round is also scheduled for tomorrow. Doubles after that. Yes, dont mind him tanking doubles at all, especially since it is against Balaji who can do with some extra confidence before Olympics.

Yessssss! I am completely with you on that aspect.... :D
We were watching 'Maidaan' the other day and the the interaction showed with the Australian players before and after the first match of the 1956 Melbourne oly - and we were like 'yeah, these guys were always like that' :oof:

On Sumit playing doubles this week, it was a gud idea to begin with.
But based on how the day transpired for him, he may opt out and withdraw. I would say that is more respectful that actually playing and tanking the match...

They may lose anyway as Balaji-Begemann have been playing well recently, so there may be no real need to tank it.

#73 in the live rankings list. Even if he wins one more round, he will stay at that ranking or move down if the folks playing at the ATP tournament just under him win. If the next two win, they will go above Sumit and he will go down to #75. So, his matching Leander's ranking at the end of the week is not a given.
