Yuki is very ineffective at the net thus far but is persisting with it to shorten rallies.

Yuki was doing well at the net earlier in the match. Pity it didn't work in that service game in this set.

Final result -

[SF] (PR) Yuki Bhambri (IND,341) l. (2) Yuichi Sugita (JPN,115) 64 46 36

Close match but Yuki made far too many errors in the end against a more consistent Sugita. As Yuki was mostly losing the long rallies, he tried to shorten the points by coming to the net more often, It succeeded in the beginning but not later in the match. He looked a lot more tired too in the end and Sugita looked more sprightly.

As a professional tennis player, Yuki needs to get fitter and develop greater endurance. Since he's not playing tomorrow, I see no reason for him not to play in Quanzhou next week. His progress in the rankings is still quite slow, and another week of points would help. After Davis Cup there are some big Challengers in East Asia where he has thrived in the past.

This was a missed opportunity for Yuki. If he had won against Sugita, he would have met Blaz Kavcic in the final whom he had thrashed last week. The big points are in the last 2 matches and it is key to win these matches to rapidly move up the rankings. A title here would have taken him inside top 250 . Now, he will have to be content with being just outside top 300.

Quanzhou Challenger

[R1] Tatsuma Ito (JPN, 171) vs. Yuki Bhambri (IND, 307) [using live rankings which may change a bit]

He drawn to meet seeds 4 (Kavcic), 5 (Marterer), 2(Duckhee Lee) and 1(Sugita) in the subsequent rounds. Donskoy isn't in this draw. Since he get at least a day of rest on Sunday, let's see if he can win a couple of rounds to make this trip worthwhile.

Sugita went on to beat Kavcic 76 64 to win the Shenzhen title and will return to top 100 with that win. In both weeks, Yuki lost in the SF to the eventual winner and was the second best player in the tournament.

Good to see Yuki is skipping the doubles and Jeevan is back with Rungkat ... But they r having tricky first round against local wildcard pair.

[R1] (4) Christopher Rungkat (INA)/ Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan (IND) vs (WC) Di Wu (CHN)/ Zhizhen Zhang (CHN)

Let's hope Jeevan wins the doubles title this week, and Yuki the singles!

No action for the Indian players today.

Yuki's match is the second one on Court 3; should start in about 90 minutes from now (around 11:30 local time). Jeevan also plays doubles later today.

Not working for me.

Yuki breezes thru the tie break to win the first set 76(2).
