Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Our first wave ended somewhere in mid September 20 and then the numbers kept coming down till mid February. So, it was close to 5 months gap between end of first wave and the start of second. Jay, are you saying third wave can start as early as in 3-4 weeks time. Any specific reason you feel that th...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Oh, thanks, Jay, Did not remember the earlier discussion. But, then they look bold in predicting 15K at end June. I know it is difficult to predict but do you think it is realistic to get to that level by end June ?

The only one which released on Eid ( released means these days only on OTT) was Salman Khan's Radhe and the reports are horrible. He is playing a hero to Disha Patni who would be of his daughter's age. Did not feel worth watching it.

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

But, if not for anything, good historical graphs of daily infections of...

Re: Heilbronn Challenger 100, Germany (Clay) - May 10-16

True, in fact 9 out of Sumit's 11 losses this year have all been against higher ranked players and 7 of those 9 have been against top 100 players. So, except for 2 losses, nothing to be ashamed of for Sumit. Just that we are expecting more from Sumit which gets us disappointed from time to time.

Re: Prajnesh Gunneswaran thread

Yes, Mcdonald lost to Ivashaka who reached Munich SF last month beating Zverev on the way and took a set off Nadal a weel before that in Barcelona. So, he was certainly more in-form than Mcdonald who was more in-form than Prajnesh.

Re: Heilbronn Challenger 100, Germany (Clay) - May 10-16

Talking about Indian players running into in-form players, Zapata Miralles who beat Sumit in QF went on to win Heilbronn Challenger title and Argentine Beaz who beat RamK in first round went on to win Zagreb Challenger title. So, both Indians lost to eventual champions. Now, this is going to get me ...

Prajnesh is playing qualfiers at Geneva.

At Gonet Geneva Open, Switzerland (Clay)

[Q1] Prajensh Gunneswaran (IND,148) vs. (5) Mackenzie Mcdonald (USA,120)

That is a tough one against an in-form player. Mcdonald reached SF last week at Heilbronn where Prajnesh lost in first round.

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

That guy Baez has gone on to upset seventh seed Damir Dzumur and second seed Pedro Martinez in the next 2 rounds to reach the SF. So, this 20 year old does seem like a real talent which RamK ran into. In the meantime, RamK has pulled of Challenger in Biella, Italy next week. He looked tired in secon...
