Yuvan wins 5-7 6-4 7-6(4). Tough grind!

Yep. Yuvan was down a break at 0-3 in the third, but then won 5 games with 2 breaks to lead 5-3, and then lost serve while serving for the match. Then in the tiebreaker, he was up 6-2, lost 2 match points and then came through, winning 11 of the final 16 points. A three hour 16 minute grind from the 18 year old to earn his 3rd ATP point and to move up some 145 spots from #1611 with an upset of the #1009 Marco Micelli... The Italian actually had 117 points and Yuvan 113 points, but he had a little but more in the tank for the final run in the tiebreaker.

Aryan's match in the R1 at the Jamaica M15 is about to start.

Thumping 6-1 6-0 win for Aryan. Probable R2 opponent will be 7th seed American, Andrew Fenty (who was the 2023 recipient of the Hurd award ($100K) given by UTR for American college players transitioning to pro-tennis).

^^^ Fenty it is. It is a bit of a mystery how he has done as poorly as he has, since leaving college last summer after being ranked in the college top-10 for two years (he is the "winningest" player in Univ. of Michigan history too!)... Really so-so results in 24 events last year. He just broke into even top-1000 only last month after so many months of play. I wonder if some health issue was bothering him. Anyway, he took out the other Junior Exempt player, Ilyas Milad Fahim (MAR) who was a top-80 junior last year, by a 63 63 score. This match won't be easy for Aryan.

At the ITF M15 in Kalmar, Sweden (Clay), Yuvan and Harry Wendelken gave a walkover today in their doubles R1. Hope it has something to do with the partner, and not him... Yuvan is in the schedule to face Nicolas Parizzia (SUI,1033) in the R16 on Thursday. Parizzia upset the 3rd seed #485 Victor Durosavic in the R1, so he may not be an easy opponent.

#1611 Yuvan lost to Parizzia, 64 36 16... Yuvan will now go to the M15 at Bol, Croatia, where he has a junior exempt main draw entry next week.

Aryan beats Fenty 6-2 6-2 :bounce: . Fenty must be in a rut to be losing so many of these matches.

Faces local fave John Chin (unranked) in the QF. Chin plays for Boise State and typically at the 5th or 6th position. He beat 2nd seed Leo Borg in a 3-setter R2 match today.

Fenty has been up and down for a while in his game, but this was an impressive win by Aryan, nonetheless. That guy had six aces and all that. He could not convert any of the 5 BPs he had on Aryan, but Aryan converted 4 of the 5 BPs he got.

Yeah, I don't know what to make of John Chin's win today. He was no big cheese in college. It might have had more to do with Leo and whatever issues he has. Chin has not had a good win in a while and has many losses to people ranked below 1000 recently. So I am expecting Aryan to do fine against him.

Aryan and Leo Borg upset the 4th seeded Japanese pair, Kosuke Ogura and Leo Vithoontien, 64 64, at the Kingston M15. Aryan is having himself a nice tournament.

At the ITF M15 in Kingston, Jamaica (Hard), [QF] (JR) Aryan Shah (IND,1096) d. (WC) John Chin (JAM,1005), 36 64 61

A bit of a weird match. Aryan went 1 of 10 at break points in the first set and Chin went 2 of 3. Actually Aryan made life difficult for himself with two DFs in the 5th game to get broken. In the second set, again some DFs caused him to et broken and fall to 36 24. But he went on a "certifiable tear" from that point and won 30 of the next 33 points. Before Chin blinked, it was 36 64 30... Chin gave some resistance for the next six games but Aryan would not lose advantage, despite a few more DFs. He served many more aces than he usually does too. 9 aces, including one at match point to go with 11 double faults. Up next is the 4th seed Ezekiel Clark (USA,706).

This is Aryan's first pro semifinal. He gets 4 more points to take the total to 13 and ranking in 10 days to just around #1000. That is reat for an 18 year old. There are only about 30 guys that young in the ATP top-1000, most of them in the 700-1000 range.

Aryan and Leo Borg got a walkover from Kiranpal Pannu (NZL) and Brandon Perez (VEN) in the SF and are in the final against the top seeds Jody Maginley (ANT) and Joshua Sheehy (USA)... So it is Aryan's first pro doubles final as well. This will raise his point total from 9 to 17 and ranking from #1637 to inside 1350. It has turned out to be a good decision to take the JR exempt spot at the Kingston M15 for Aryan.

Aryan is up 61 00 on Ezekiel Clark, with 3 breaks after dropping the very first game. :dance:

Update: Aryan won 61 62... At 3-1 in the second, while tryin to turn quickly for a backpedal on a lob, Aryan seemed to twist his ankle though. He hopped 2 or 3 times immediately. He let Clark hold serve there but after some taping, he went back and won 3 games quickly to reach his first pro final. Great job! He will almost double his point total from 9 to 17 now and will move up around 140 spots to about #925 in ranking.
