DK Suresh's Wake Forest U is doing well in the NCAA tournaments. Ranked #6, they just reached the NCAA championships final 8, after beating the
"team of Indian-Americans", #19 Stanford, 4-1... Notable was our man Suresh Ekambaram (ranked #79) beating the talented Ind-Am Samir Banerjee (#55) in three sets in a comeback 26 61 64. Super-talented freshman Ind-Am Nishesh Basavareddy (#17) was the only Stanford Cardinal to get a singles win today. The tie started with Suresh and Holden Coons (they ranked as the #2 doubles pair in college) taking care of winning the #1 spot doubles set (after the two teams were tied 1-1). After securing the doubles point, it was off to 6 sinles matches. With Samir and Neel Rajesh losing, Stanford was out after 4 of the singles matches got done with a 3-1 WF lead in singles and thus a 4-1 overall win including the doubles point.

DK Suresh has been playing very well lately, and has a bunch of top-100 wins. He is clearly under-ranked at #79, mostly due to some losses earlier in the season.
