Good news and bad news. Let's start with bad news. Nadal is Out. Hopefuly he recovers fast. Good news - We have our very own Yuki Bhambri who might play in main draw this time in singles, provided he qualify after winning few games in the qualifying round. So let's cheer for the young gun from India, YUKI BHAMBRI.

Some details about the qualifying rounds should be good.

Federer has told "it is pretty bad" about Nadal's injury. I think this is looking worse for him. He is kind of guy who would give his life for every point. His game primarily revolves around his physical fitness compared to some of the other guys. So he better focusses on returning to his best physical fitness.

Though I am not a fan' date=' but I wish Rafa a speedy recovery for the sake of healthy competition in tennis. :pray:[/quote'] Why do you think, Tennis needs Rafa for a healthy competition? ICF has voted that Federer faced better competition before Rafa came on the scene :dontknow:

Devarman is actually not higher ranked anymore. He was injured for 6 months and hence his ranking dropped. He's back, and since only top 100 get to be in draw, Somdev was able to qualify for main draw because he has used something called "protected ranking" which allows player to qualify for a main draw after they return from injury. Yuki Bhambri is the highest ranked Indian now. Soon he will be in top 100 and then top 50. I SAY AGAIN. - IDNAI'S MOST AWAITED TENNIS SINGLES PLAYER HAS ARRIVED.

Hopefully and he is the only promising youngster too....Paes/Bhupathi are history Boppana is probably 30+,Devarmann is 27...vishnu Vardhan is 25-but from what I saw not very impressive....So hopefully this guy will be the future for us

Nope. There are some other nice players out there. Ya they aren't as good as Yuki but one can expected them to do good in future. There is Sriram Balaji. There is Vishnu Vardhan. also we have two good doubles players who might come in future - DIVIJ SHARAN AND PURAV RAJA. Then recently this guy came in the news - Saketh Myaneni. He is very young and has just started going to decent tournaments. Hopefully they get well take care of.

:two_thumbs_up: I wonder Cricketics if each one of us in ICF can "adopt" one sports person outside cricket to spread the "good news" for every feat - minor or major.

Allrite guys. Don't miss out this video. Leander and Radek chest bump after winning a vital point.

Also here is a clip i recorded of Sumit Nagal. I was surprised to see that there are no ball boys/girls for junior qualies. They have to pick up the ball and towell themself. He was playing on a court where 2 other games were going on. So I had to record this clip from the little gap between the door as you can make it out.
