Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Wow, what a dominating win. As I said yesterday, Silva was ranked in 230's last year and was a regular challenger player. To beat him 62 62 indicates that this week Sumit is playing even better than he was last year this time when he was getting close to beating players ranked close to 200 . One mor...

Re: Indian Badminton Thread ...

It does look like that will happen based on this article -

Ready to retire and take up new role: Jwala Gutta

It will be good if she can contribute to improving Indian doubles strength which is already looking up with the Malaysian coach at the helm.

Re: Ankita Raina thread

Ankita's superb run continues and she reached her first $60 ( earlier $50K) level final. This comes out of nowhere as based on her results this year we were wondering if her game has declined for good and now she comes up with this career best run. Hope she caps it tomorrow with a big title. It won'...

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Wow, he seems to be well and truly back now. Now, only needs to continue this momentum for next 2 matches which will give maximum points. At $25K Romania F2 Futures 2017, Bacau [SF] (5) Sumit Nagal (IND,405) vs. (7) Frederico FERREIRA SILVA (POR,406) Another tough one. Ferreura Silva was ranked 231 ...

Re: Ankita Raina thread

Outside of her 2 top100 wins in fed cup in 2016, this is Ankita's best win on pro tour ( based on ranking of the opponent). Earlier she had a win over 143rd ranked Russian Alexandrova last September in Tshkent. So, it is quite a special one for her. But, I hope she keeps her focus for tomorrow's mat...

Re: $15K Singapore F1-F3, May 22-June 11, 2017

VSP lost the first set 67(7) after missing 3 set points at 6-3 in the tie break. Surprising that they are still playing as it must be well past midnight in Singapore. It is especially unlucky for VSP as his opponent got a walkover in his second round match today and so is fresh while VSP has already...

Re: ATP World Tour Masters/ WTA Clay court season 2017

Time for Sania to retire? Why? Clearly this is an absurd question from a tennis perspective as elegantly outlined by many above. Do you have other considerations that are in your mind? Her results are worse than when she parted with Hingis. Looks like her game has gone down or no good player wants ...

Re: Roland Garros 2017

Yes, Yuki has hardly played on grass in his career. He has mostly been injured during grass season. He played a few matches in 2012 and 2015 and did not have much success in either of the years. So, I am not too optimistic. He has good volleys but due to lack of big serve he cannnot serve and volley...

Re: Sudirman Cup 2017

In the first match, valient fight by our new mixed doubles pairing of Sathwik and Ashiwini but they lost in close 3 games to world #2 Chinese pair 21-16, 13-21, 16-21. But, kudos to our pair who are playing together for the first time to be playing at the level of top 10 pairs in all the matches. Th...

Re: Roland Garros 2017

And to rub salt in the wound, the one who qualified for main draw from Yuki's section is Italian Stefano Napolitano whom Yuki had easily beaten in straight sets in the Shenzhen challenger in March. :-(
