Sandesh wins ATF(Asian Tennis Federation) Tournament Under 14 in Colombo, Srilanka

The Match Summary

It was super exciting match as predicted by all of us which pitted best friends, hitting partners, academy mates and India no. 8 & 9 against each other.. The match opened with not much of fan fare before Sandesh was staring at a set point at 5-2.. Arjun who was docile uptil then started getting his groove back which saw him win that game and the next in which Sandesh had 2 more set points. The score at 5-4 saw Arjun come up with some awesome hitting with which he levelled the set. Sandesh came up with some brilliant groundstrokes to claim the game but Arjun conquered the next which forced them into a tie break. Arjun raced to a quick 4-2 lead in the tie break, Sandesh caught up with him but Arjun was too good to win the next 3 points on the trot to capture the tiebreaker and first set 7-6.
The second set was one sided with Arjun weilding his racket which saw one winner after the other to take him to a 4-1 lead. Sandesh had his back on the wall and he was left with the only option he calls his strength.. His ability to fight back from a bleak situation which earned him his nick name”The master of Comebacks” which he put it to test again and boy it did pay. He leveled the set at 4-4 but Arjuns awesome 3 return winners in the ninth game saw him go to a 5-4 lead. Sandesh was quick to step in and capture the next 3 games in a row to snatch the set and level the match to a one set all

The third set opened with both the players slightly exhausted coz the match was already past the 2 1/2 hour mark. The match was evenly poised so did the score at 4-4.. Arjun got the next game to  lead 5-4 but Sandesh’s big hitting came to his rescue to level it again at 5 all. The match was going down to the wire with no clear favourite at that point. Sandesh’s unrelenting groundstrokes and string of winners saw him beat his best friend in a 3 hour 40 min battle where the scoreboard finally read 6-7,7-5,7-5

The match was Pro class coz 6 out 8 points they played ended in a winner. They ran corner to corner for each rally before one dealt a mind boggling winner. Two guys who moved from qualifying and playing only their second ATF got the entire Crowd cheering for them. Overall a great battle but sadly only one came out as a Victor and the day belonged to Sandesh Kantimahanti…

Arjun & Sandesh in the finals of Asian Tennis Federation (ATF) in Colombo, Sri Lanka

Tams boys produce a good show in Colombo, Srilanka

Under 12 Karnataka No.1 Arjun Sriram  and Karnataka No.2 Sandesh Kantimahanti won their respective singles Semifinals to make it for summit title clash of the Asian Tennis Federation juniors which is a Under 14 age category trow in the Srilankan Tennis Association courts here in Colombo.

Arjun fought brilliantly in a tight match to beat Ashensilva Sangarajage of Srilanka 6-2,6-1. The match was too close right from the start with Arjun winning all the close points which made the score line look so easy.. The 2nd game of the first set alone ran upto 17 dueces…

Sandesh made short work of his semis beating Sean Sanderson of Srilanka 6-0,6-0. The precision with which Sandesh executed his strokes gave Sean nothing to work with, so much so that Sean had just 2 game points the entire match which Sandesh deftly put it away for clean winners..

It will be a exciting final to be played by best buddies, hitting partners, academy mates, India No.8 & India No.9 separated by just 2.5 national ranking points..

 

Sandesh joins Arjun in the Under-12 Top 10 National Rank

Sandesh’s long wait to join Arjun(who has been in the Top 10 all Year) in the top 10 of India has come about yesterday with him becoming India 9 and Arjun just ahead of him at 8. Best buddies, doubles partners with several National titles under their belt and a Doubles crown at the highest National ranking tournament in Mumbai to boot & hitting partners now have one more thing to say that they have in common :: A top 10 national billing… kudos to their hard work.. Way to go…

Now we can proudly say that we own 20% in the Top 10..

Sandesh Wins GTA AITA National Ranking on 03 Dec 2013


This Tournament was a see-saw of events for the Tams(Tennis And More Sporting) boys, the top half of the boys draw was loaded with a strong contingent of tams guys…Out of the top 8 seeds four seeds were from Tams and three were in the top half of the draw..

The tournament began with the same fanfare and proceeded till the pre-quarters (round of 16) without much of a heart burn. The first causality from Tams was Madhavan (seed 4) who lost to in-form Rajesh Kannan.  Then Arjun Sriram (Top Seed) from Tams had to play Rohan Arun who is also from Tams and is a student of Gear Foundation school. Rohan’s performance was excellent throughout the season; he was coming into the prequarter with an excellent win against the seeded & experienced Abeer Dubey. The match started out with a tight competition with both boys trading blows and games before couple of line calls went against Rohan and thus resulted in his loss of focus which got him derailed. Rohan lost a hard fought match but was soon to say that his loss of focus on the line calls was the event that triggered the result against his favor, A lesson learnt at the end but with a price….

Quarter-finals:

Top Seed Arjun had to play Adarsh Arun (also from TAMS). Adarsh had an outstanding win in the previous round against Nikhil Niranjan, after trailing 0-4, he pulled himself to beat Nikhil 8-6. Adarsh was quick to finish the first set with just 2 unforced errors and later vanquished a fighting Arjun to win the match and thus entering the semi-finals

ENTER third seed Sandesh Kantimahanti student of TAMS & Gear Foundation School, his Quarters was lined up with Deepak A. Big hitting Deepak can create a buzz whenever & wherever he plays and he did just that against Sandesh, he ran away to a 3-0 lead in the first set before Sandesh found his form & his winning ways to take the 1st set 5-4(tie breaker score 7-4)and then the next set at 4-0, with that the match..

Our Excitement at Tams was hanging in a balance, excited coz 2 of the 4 semifinalists were from TAMS but then they were to play each other in the Semi’s.

The match started with the in-form Adarsh racing to a 2-0 lead, it was after that our very own master of comebacks woke up and pitched in a heavy duel, Sandesh took the 1st set without even blinking twice at 6-2 after being down 0-2.. The second set  raced to a 5-2 lead in Sandesh’s favor but Adarsh mounted a huge late fight to level the 2nd set at 5-5, not long before it went down to the wire at 6-6 and the Tie Breaker(race to 7 points with a difference of 2 points). Sandesh showed some brilliant consistency which saw him win the tiebreaker, the set and the match.

Finals :

Finals is always a nerve wrecker even for some seasoned Pro’s, Now imagine Sandesh all of eleven years, playing his first Under 12 Nationals. Not only was he on the line but his entire support team right from his Driver, to the tennis Academy watch-man to the manager, his On-court Hitter to the Ball Feeder, the parents (with his dad on a flight to the US) and his coach(That’s me, my patience is legendary as most of you who is reading this should already be aware of). I had to be there to see for myself how it will unfold.

The Finals was against the Heavy hitting Sharaniyan. The match went even in the 1st set before Sharaniyan had a set point at 5-4. An unforced error from him saw Sandesh level the 1st set at 5-5 and then the set went into a tie breaker. Sandesh kept his cool and took the tie breaker at 7-2, with that the 1st set. The 2nd set was bull dozed by Sharaniyan with him racing to a 3-0 lead, again our master of comebacks caught up to make it 2-3, but even before we could sigh a relief he lost the next game to be down 2-4. Sandesh realized this was it.. he came up with a string of great shots to win the next 4 games in a row and with that he wrapped up his 2nd set and the match. His first Nationals title.. He truly deserved it for the amount of effort he pumped in for the last 2 years…. Kudos to his hard work. Keep it up boy…
