hema, did you read this? yuki-chan

HIT AND LEARN

Why is someone smiling after losing 6-4, 6-3 in the first round Wednesday?

Because he played with all the zest and desire -- if not the experience -- that 16 years of age will allow. Winning would have been nice, but learning almost was as important to Yuki Bhambri of India, who lost to Diego Junqueira, 29, of Argentina.

Bhambri, who won the 2008 Orange Bowl International junior tournament, said, ``I was not intimidated. He [Junqueira] was more of a counterpuncher and I had a chance. I'm happy to get this opportunity at this age. You learn a lot. You are playing the best players in the world and I enjoyed myself. I think I put up a good show.''

Bhambri, who has two sisters playing on the WTA tour, said of his match, ``I felt no pressure at all.''

Bhambri started taking tennis seriously when he was 6 in New Delhi. There were courts about five minutes from his house, so finding facilities was not a problem. Finding suitable hitting mates was. ''In India, there are not enough players to practice with,'' he said. ``It's improving, but we've never had a Top 10 player.''

These days, Bhambri has plenty of practice partners. He attends the Nick Bollettieri Academy in Bradenton, and every day is a combination of education and tennis. ''My parents always make sure I have all my books along,'' he said.

What's next for Bhambri?

''I'm going to stay here and hit with some players,'' he said.

``I still have a lot to learn.''
good attitude, kid

WG, not I had not read that. Thanks

Good attitude for sure. And losing his first ATP match 6-4,6-3 is not really that bad.

yeah, it's not bad at all. i hope he continues to work hard and do well

does he have a coach or is it just someone from the bollettieri academy?

edit: his itf page has him being coached by aditya sachdev but that might be dated. and rafito is his favorite player

Wikipedia also gives that name for his coach.

That ITF page might be a bit out of date because it says his career ambition is to play Davis Cup for India. He turned down a spot on the DC team earlier this year. He put his dream on hold.

Playing for your country is a great ambition, particularly if you're 14 (or however old he was when he gave that information). Bham-Bham was right not to join the DC squad. He probably would have just restrung Somdev's rackets.

Sammy with the break.

I'm off.

So, you ladies/ guys obviously do not give a shit whether Nadal plays doubles then.

I'm in a shitty mood...tempted to find a target to argue with but I'll try to resist.
