Granby Challenger (Hard) – 1st Round

  • Yuki Bhambri (201) d Roberto Quiroz (241) – 6-7, 6-3, 6-1

Author`s view: After losing the first set tie break Yuki came back strongly to win  the following two sets against a player who is more comfortable on clay. Still a good win. A second round win will assure him inside top 200 on  ATP. He could be up against world no 130 Denis Shapovalov in the second round, A Canadian that Yuki might  face again in the Davis Cup in  Sept.

Hua Hin ITF – 2nd Round

  • Karman Kaur Thandi (349) d Kernel Kennel (570) – 6-1, 4-6, 6-3

Author`s view: After winning the first set she was up a break in the second set but lost the set. But she came back to win the decider. Always good to win  such matches in  straight sets but it also showed Karman`s attitude that she did not let the second set affect her.

In the quarters she is facing Naiktha Bains from Australia ranked 454. Up against a player of her age.
