The young Indian seems to be making progress. Up to 188, beat Zeballos in US Open qualifying. Only 20 still, seems like he is starting to make a push right about now.

He has some good talent in him.

10-23-2013, 08:43 AM
I think this deserves a bump

He's had some impressive results over the last couple of months in a string of tournaments in Taiwan, which has gotten him back into the top 300 (he dropped to 593 at one stage after effectively not playing for 4 months). He's playing the Australian/Asian hardcourt swing now - if his Kaohsiung run is any indication he should make the AO qualifying draw fairly comfortably since he has only 9 points to defend for the rest of the year.

Into the semis of the Traralgon challenger with a 3 set win over Ito, who made the final of the Melbourne challenger last week

11-02-2013, 03:03 AM
Ranked #593 on August 26th 2013, he just reached his second Challenger final since then (d. Duckworth in the semi-finals of an Australian event) and is now on the verge of the top 200. He's approaching his career high of #174 (set in October 2012) and should get another Chennai wild card to start the new season.

11-04-2013, 04:45 AM
Takes the title and now up to #204.

Wins the Traralgon challenger title with a come from behind 3 setter over Klahn. He's entered into an Indian Futures tournament next week, as well as being on the alternates list for a couple of Japanese Challengers, but he said at Traralgon that he wouldn't be playing any more Challengers this season other than the Asian WC playoff for the AO. I guess we'll find out what he does over the next few weeks.

Follows up the Traralgon win with another title in the India F9 Futures in Delhi, beating Sriram Balaji 6-2 6-2, which gives him a decent hit-out before going to the Asia-Pacific wildcard playoff for the AO.

11-20-2013, 11:02 AM
def. Venus 2-6 6-2 6-3 in the first round of the Asia-Pacific wildcard playoff. Should have an easier second round; if he wins that he'll face Di Wu in the semis.

That's good. Lately, haven't seen any good players from New Zealand.

To nobody's surprise, Bhambri has a WC into the Chennai Open this week - playing Carreño Busta in R1 in an interesting contest.

12-31-2013, 12:39 PM
Yuki's win against Pablo Carreno Busta in Chennai extends his winning streak to 11 matches (a combination of Futures, Challenger and ATP wins). He is now comfortably in the top 200.

#12 with today's win over the Fog, his career best win so far...
Also takes him to a career best ranking of #172...

Awesome start to the year...

With the retirement-assisted win over Fognini, he's into the QFs of Chennai where he plays Pospisil. Once again he's the clear underdog but with recent form he definitely has a chance

01-04-2014, 02:55 AM
6-3 6-3. Would like to see him more on ATP tour rather than challengers and futures. Pospisil dominated the match.

01-04-2014, 08:19 AM
Yeah Vasek was never really troubled here - Yuki just wasn't able to stop him running around and hitting forehands all match. Yuki's ground game isn't bad but that serve needs serious work - he struggled to get many first serves in and even then, he was hardly getting free points off it.

He's a little way off tour level, and with his current ranking it's going to be a little while before he gets into the main draws of tour events. There are a couple of Indian Challenger tournaments in February which I assume he'll play - despite his good week here I feel he needs some sustained success in Challengers before moving to bigger events, not just to show he's good enough but to get some confidence in his injury-prone body.

01-07-2014, 08:40 AM
Up against Starace in QR1 of the AO. Looking forward a little he's probably the form player in his section, but there are no guarantees

01-07-2014, 07:14 PM
Gl! :)

Yuki is on the entry list for the Chennai and Kolkata Challengers, and will most likely be seeded for both. Good chance for him to make a serious rankings push - he has 7 points to defend until early March, and just 20 to defend until August. Injuries permitting, top 100 is on the cards.

02-06-2014, 12:00 PM
Into the semis of the Chennai Challenger - faces compatriot and top seed Devvarman

02-07-2014, 12:31 PM
Takes down Devvarman 6-2 6-4 and will be favoured in the final against unseeded Kudryavtsev.

02-08-2014, 10:55 AM
Came back from a set down and 3-5 in the third to take out Kudryavtsev 4-6 6-3 7-5 and win the final of the Chennai Challenger. He'll move up to about 145 this week.

He just missed the cut for a seeding in the Kolkata Challenger, but thanks to the Chennai win could be seeded in New Delhi the following week. He faces a qualifier in R1 of Kolkata - good luck!

What's with him? Pulling out of challengers these weeks.

02-26-2014, 03:10 PM
Yuki played 4 consecutive weeks since davis cup. So, he seems to be taking it easy probably nursing some niggle too. I think next up he will be at Miami qualies.

I think it's more serious because he also pulled out of Miami qualis next week. That's 4 weeks in a row...
