On a side note, Neha Tripathi got engaged to Jeevan Neduncheziyan earlier this year. Both seem to have enjoyed a good year with Jeevan getting to top 100 in doubles and now Neha securing playing card for European tour.

At Dubai Creek Open (MENA Tour event)- Defending Champion Rayhan Thomas was not able to defend his title and has finished tied second.
However in Round 2,he hit nine consecutive birdies and had equaled Mark Calcavecchia’s (2009- Candian Open) record of 9 birdies in row for a OWGR ranked tournament.

Have we spoken/written about Julian Suri? He is tied for second place in the EPGA’s Open de France.

His father Jagan Suryanarayan was a national
Level tennis player during Vijay and Ramesh’s era. And they are descendants of Buchi Babu Naidu, who pioneered Cricket in Chennai for Indians.
