Very nice, how many Indian men have won an ITF pro event at age 18 or younger?

Among recent players, Yuki won a 5-6 futures in India when he was 17. Won his first outside India as he turned 19 also in Africa. Somdev won his first future title as he turned 19 also in India.

If Aryan can win the title, it will be a pretty unique achievement to win a futures title outside India when still 18.

They lost the final at the ITF M15 in Kingston, Jamaica, 63 57 (2-10). They were up a break and serving for the match at 5-3, but Leo had a lackadaisical serving game, and they proceeded to totally lose it from there. Won only 6 of the final 22 points, when they got broken twice and did nothing in the STB. It did not seem like Aryan's ankle injury was bothering him, but I did feel that both he and Leo were not moving aggressively in the end. Aryan may have been saving himself for the singles final but I am not sure what Leo's deal was!

So spooky. If you click on the video now you would see. Someone forgot to switch off the camera. So it starts from late late night I guess and slowly there is day break. Match starts after you are five hours into video

Haha, you are right! It is spooky. Like the ghost of Bertrand Clark (RIP) will show up any time on screen!

(I am sure PKB would know who Mr. Clark is)

If Aryan can win the title, it will be a pretty unique achievement to win a futures title outside India when still 18.
Sumit and Sanam Singh won titles before 18 in India. RamK won a title before 19 in India. The last one who one a title that young was Manish Sureshkumar when he was 18+ in Srilanka.

But, in last 15-20 years nobody has won a title outside sub continent before 19. Hope Aryan can do that.

He plays another Indian origin player in the final.

At ITF M15 in Kingston, Jamaica (Hard)

I also wonder how many players with JR exempt entries have won a title so far...

At the Kingston (Jamaica) M15 final, Aryan had a very tough time today against the Kiwi, Kiranpal Pannu (NZL,645). Pretty clear that Aryan was impaired by something - possibly the ankle that got twisted yesterday though it might have caused any serious injury. He ran fine on a few points but generally did not seem to be running too hard and had quite a few mishits, which looked like they came from rushing the shot or from improper body mechanics. Again, maybe some aches and pains causing it, possibly. Anyway, Pannnu sensed this and was constantly trying to move him all around, playing some serve and volley and a bunch of drop shots and all that. Aryan looked dejected very often, and lost the match 1-6 1-6.

Yuvan Nandal is a Junior exempt player at the M15 in Bol, Croatia (clay) this week. He just won his first round against a decent 18 year old local wildcard, Kristian Tumbas Kajgo (CRO,NR), 67(2) 63 64 ... His next opponent is TBD tomorrow. I saw the latter half of the match today, on ITF's live stream. Not sure how he even dropped the first set, but perhaps his "wound up" style on court got in his way. Yuvan needs to chill and just play his game. He has the game. Just hit the shots, stop celebrating every point you win, and more importantly, stop muttering to yourself and getting down on yourself after every missed shot with hands to the knee body language. It is no big deal. Mistakes happen. Wasting even an extra 5 second on the mistake is taking away that much time in planning the next shot. Don't make a mistake cause another mistake. Just focus on hitting the ball and enjoying it rather than making every point and every match a battle with yourself.

Yuvan has a solid game, great legs, body strength, athleticism and some power. Things can only get better. I was seeing him for the first time since late 2022 in a Korea junior event where he almost beat the then junior #10 Campana Lee, in three sets. His game has improved a bit more. He has all the shots and looks technically fine to my layman's eye, but the shots need to get more accurate. The serve has certainly added some more velocity and he served 6 aces today (only one DF).

Riya Bhatia (now down to #988, well below her #338 ranking 4 years ago at age 22) showed up at the W35 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (Hard)... A rare 48-draw event at that level. She beat a local wildcard Feidi Abreau (DOM,ITF-1201) 60 60, and plays 14th seed Mia Horvit (USA,762) in R32... Saumya Vig is also in the main draw there (EDIT: #1270 Saumya beat #1133 Emma Van Poppel, 62 46 64 to make R32). [Update: A couple of days of play got rained out and they played R32 matches only on Friday!... Riya lost to Horvit 64 26 [5-10] and Saumya lost 06 16 to Alexandra Bozovic (AUS,623)]

21 year old Smriti Bhasin (IND,1267) was the 5th seed in the qualies at the M15 in Fukui, Japan, and made the main draw with two straight set wins over Japanese players. [Update: Smriti lost in the R1 to Yui Chikaraishi (JPN,1018) 36 67(4)]

Aryan starts with a very good comeback win.

At ITF M15 in Kingston, Jamaica (Hard)

[R1] Aryan Shah (IND,1096) d. (WC) John Chin (JAM,1005) 57 62 63

Aryan also served for the first set at 5-4 and had a set point too but lost that set and completly changed his tactics after that. Played lots of drops shots ( almost 2 in every game) and slices and lobs that for which his opponent had no answer.

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.
