Birghamton Challenger – 1st Round:

  • Ramkumar Ramanathan (178) l Cameron Norrie (275) : 6-7 , 2-6

Author`s View:  With Ramkumar on  the upswing he lost a winnable match. I guess he is playing too many back  to back tournaments. Maybe it is time for him to go back to training for a week and come back stronger. His serve and forehands are getting stronger but still need to do some work on his backhand. However good to see him slicing less on his backhand which shows he is getting more confident with it.

Hua Hin ITF – 1st Round – 1st Round

  • Karman Kaur Thandi(349) d Champoothip Jandakate (UNR) – 6-0, 6-1

Author`s view: As was expected she won the match convincingly. Her second round match against WTA 570 ranked Karin Kennel who defeated Natasha Palha in the first round is winnable.
