Some time ago, there was a conversation about how Lakshya Sen is too short and too scrawny to be a serious player in the senior men's level. In response, we discussed how he's just growing. This article confirms it:
Overcoming growing pains: Lakshya Sen
Lakshya Sen is undergoing growing up pangs quite literally. The Uttarakhand player who trains at Prakash Padukone Academy in Bangalore under Vimal Kumar, is shooting up in height, which brings with it its own set of complications that have blighted this year for the teenager. Finally cornering a title — albeit age-group one — will give him some confidence.

“It’s satisfying because since January he’s had this problem of shoulder pain and troubles on the shin and ankle. He’s gaining height and when pushed in training, he’s getting injuries. So he’s been performing on and off,” coach Vimal Kumar explains, adding that it’s a good result in that context. “He’s still growing, so those joint areas are very tender. There are many issues but he’s slowly coming back, though even during his Junior World Championship campaign, he faced a shin problem. He’s still growing so we need to modify his physical training,” Vimal added.

He seems to be at least 5'10" now, and might even get to close to 6" . With greater strength training to support his growing reach, he can be a serious force in the senior circuit.

Yuki Bhambri is now in the top 100 (currently 85) for some time now and played the main tournament of all the three grandslams so far this year. He lost in the first round in all the three tournaments to lesser ranked players though.

Another player pushing the top 100 is Ramkumar Ramanathan. He is 6'2" and just reached the first ATP final by an Indian after Somdev in 2011. With some more improvement in his ranking, he may enter the main tournament of US Open without going through the qualifying rounds. He is supposedly big serving, though from watching his video, I didn't find it particularly big or effective by today's standards.

India looses by one goal to Ireland. Unlike the men the women are not at international level. No off-the-ball running, creating spaces and poor PC conversion.

HS Prannoy and Sameer Verma geared up for bigger battles with straight-game victories as India made a resounding start at the BWF World Championships, in Nanjing, China, on Monday.

World No. 11 Prannoy started his campaign in style beating New Zealand's Abhinav Manota 21-12, 21-11, while Sameer dumped France's Lucas Corvee 21-13, 21-10 to progress to the second round.

Prannoy, who had clinched a bronze medal at the Asia Badminton Championship this year, will face Brazil's Ygor Coelho, while Swiss Open champion Sameer will have an uphill task of taming the legendary Lin Dan of China, a two-time Olympic gold medallist.


The Indian mixed doubles pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Ashwini Ponnappa, who had been in good form at the Commonwealth Games, prevailed 21-9, 22-20 over Denmark's Niclas Nohr and Sara Thygesen. They will next face the German pairing of Mark Lamsfuss and Isabel Herttrich, seeded 15th.

India's top mixed doubles duo of Pranaav Jerry Chopra and N Sikki Reddy, ranked 22nd, also made a good start defeating Czech Republic's Jakub Bitman and Alzbeta Basova 21-17, 21-15 to set up a clash with the Indonesian combine of Hafiz Faizal and Gloria Emanuelle Widjaja.

The men's doubles pair of Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy, who had won the Lagos International recently, defeated Bulgarian pair Daniel Nikolov and Ivan Rusev 21-13, 21-18 to also make it to the second round.

Young Indian mixed doubles pairing of Saurabh Sharma and Anoushka Parikh, and Rohan Kapoor and Kuhoo Garg, also pulled off impressive wins to advance to the second round.

Saurabh and Anoushka defeated Nigerian combo of Enejoh Abah and Peace Orji 21-13, 21-12, while Rohan and Kuhoo, who had finished runners-up at the Russian Open, beat Canada's Toby Ng and Rachel Honderich 21-19, 21-6 in another mixed doubles match.

However, Sanyogita Ghorpade and Prajakta Sawant went down fighting 20-22, 14-21 to Turkey's Bengisu Ercetin and Nazlican Inci in 34 minutes in the women's doubles competition.

India will meet Italy and if they win Ireland in hockey. Although both these teams are playing well they are below India in ranking. This is the best possible draw for India. Hope India plays to their potential and reaches the SF which will in itself will be an achievement.

India beat Italy 3-0 to qualify for the quarterfinals (last 8)

India vs Italy, Women's Hockey World Cup Highlights: India Beat Italy 3-0 To Qualify For Quarter-Finals



The Indian women's hockey team reached the knockout stage of the Hockey Women's World Cup 2018 on Sunday after ending their third and final Pool B match against the USA in a 1-1 draw. The draw helped India reach the cross-overs stage by finishing third in Pool B. India will now play Italy in their cross-over stage. Ahead of their crucial match against Italy, team captain Rani Rampal said that the team will have to go all out in the match if they want to reach the quarter-final of the tournament. "We need to just focus on ourselves, build on our strength and ensure we use our positive points in the match against Italy. There is no doubt we need to go all-out in this crucial crossover match if we want to see ourselves in the quarter-final," Rani said.

Highlights India vs Italy, Women's Hockey World Cup at Lee Valley Hockey & Tennis Centre, London.

Great show from the ladies! We're the only Asian team left. Japan and China failed to make playoffs and SoKo lost to England.

Quarterfinal pairings:
England vs Netherlands
Australia vs Argentina
Ireland vs India
Germany vs Spain

If we win, we play the winner of Germany vs Spain. We have a decent chance; the Irish beat us 1-0 in the group stage, in a hard-fought match. That was our only loss so far.
vs England: drew 1-1
vs USA: drew 1-1
vs Ireland: lost 0-1
vs Italy: won 3-0

Score could easily have been 4-0 or 5-0. If they convert and play like this should go through SF. Meanwhile, Only Srikanth, Sindhu, Saina and XD team left in badminton WC.

We drew vs England. They - as Team GB - are the current Olympic champions. We have definitely improved. Clearly we have claim to be best in Asia now. Hope the ladies make the semis , and win the AG gold.

After an improved show in the recently-concluded Champions Trophy, the Indian men’s hockey team will round its preparations for the upcoming Asian Games with an 11-day camp at the Sports Authority of India (SAI) centre in Bengaluru starting on Thursday. The camp will include seven standby players besides the 18-member selected squad.

After a hectic 21 days where the national campers played back-to-back matches against Bangladesh, South Korea and New Zealand as part of their preparations for the upcoming tournament, the players were given a much-needed break to recover and return fresh for the national camp which concludes on August 11.

“We will be starting high-intensity training after a gap of almost one week. The rest was much-needed after a hectic and busy schedule where the players played high-tempo matches against Bangladesh, South Korea and New Zealand,” chief coach Harendra Singh said in a statement.
India, who are the defending champions, have been grouped in Pool A alongside South Korea, Japan, Sri Lanka, Hong Kong China and Indonesia.

“This break was essential because now the players will report with a fresh mind and fresh legs for the final preparatory camp before heading for the most important Asian Games where we want to seal the Olympic qualification by winning gold,” Harendra said.

“In the camp, we will continue working on all aspects of the game with specific focus on converting opportunities in the striking circle. We will work on the shortcomings noticed during the New Zealand matches,” he added.
The chief coach is confident of his team’s prospects at the quadrennial event, which according to him will be a stepping stone towards the season-ending World Cup in Bhubaneswar.

“We are confident the team will take to the training sessions with high energy and they are aware that a successful Asian Games will be the right stepping stone for the season’s most-awaited Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup Bhubaneswar,” Harendra said.

Indian squad:

Goalkeepers: PR Sreejesh, Krishan B Pathak, Suraj Karkera

Defenders: Harmanpreet Singh, Varun Kumar, Birendra Lakra, Surender Kumar, Rupinder Pal Singh, Amit Rohidas, Kothajit Singh Khadangbam, Jarmanpreet Singh

Midfielders: Manpreet Singh, Chinglensana Singh Kangujam, Simranjeet Singh, Sardar Singh, Vivek Sagar Prasad, Nilakanta Sharma, Sumit.

Forwards: S V Sunil, Mandeep Singh, Akashdeep Singh, Lalit Kumar Upadhyay, Dilpreet Singh, Sumit Kumar, Shilanand Lakra.

Thank you for posting the full contingent list. I was really looking for one.

Minor nitpick.

Sakshi Malik plays in 62 kg and Vinesh Phogat in 50 kg. First post messed it up. And they only gave men's team of Greco Roman discipline not free style.

They have recurve Archery in Asian games but not in Olympics.

What are the different type of Archery? I see Indians better in Recurve Archery than normal archery.

No, AG has compound bow archery, which Olympics does not. Both AG and OG have recurve bow archery.

We are competitive at world standard in compound bow, but the Koreans dominate recurve.

" The world no. 10 India last played in a quarter-final encounter 40 years ago in the 1978 Madrid Women's World Cup. The team's semi-final appearance in the inaugural edition of the World Cup in 1974 remains the best Indian performance in the history of the prestigious event. However, these stats would not play on the team's mind when they take on the World no.16 Ireland on Thursday according to team Skipper Rani Rampal."

Nanjing , August 2
Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu sailed into the quarterfinals with straight-game wins but it was curtains for Kidambi Srikanth at the badminton World Championships. Saina downed 2013 champion Ratchanok Inthanon of Thailand 21-16 21-19 to set up a meeting with Carolina Marin of Spain.

Sindhu, seeded third, eased past ninth seed Ji Hyun Sung of South Korea 21-10 21-18 in another third round clash. Sindhu will next play eighth seed Nozomi Okuhara of Japan.

“I am really happy with the performance. It was a good match overall even though I won the first set quite easily. But the second game was not easy. There were a lot of rallies so I had to be consistent and be very patient,” Sindhu said.

Asked about her clash against Okuhara tomorrow, she added: “We have been playing against each other for a while and tomorrow will be yet another one and a very important one. I can tell you one thing that it will be a long match so I need to be prepared and will give my 100 per cent.”

B Sai Praneeth also eased into the quarterfinals with a comfortable 21-13 21-11 win over Denmark’s Hans-Kristian Solberg Vittinghus. He will next take on sixth seed Kento Momota.

Satwik-Ashwini win
The Indian mixed doubles pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Ashwini Ponnappa also stood one step away from a medal after pulling off a stunning 20-22 21-14 21-6 victory over the Malaysian world No.7 combination of Goh Soon Huat and Shevon Jemie Lai.

However, fifth seed Srikanth’s dream of winning a medal came crashing down after he was outwitted 18-21 18-21 by the experienced Malaysian Daren Liew in a 41-minute clash.

Saina ready for Marin
Saina showed amazing retrieving skills against Intanon, who is on a comeback trail after recovering from an injury. “It is a very good win. She is known for her deceptive game. The second game was going my way but suddenly she played some difficult strokes she was everywhere and made it 19-19. At that point, Gopi sir told me what to do and I followed that and the game turned in my favour,” Saina said.

“Pressure is less on me now because in the last few tournaments I haven’t been able to cross the quarterfinals and I have played well at the Gold Commonwealth Games and the Asian Championship. I can see that the form sometimes goes here and there but I am happy it is coming back in important events.”

Talking about her next match against Marin, Saina said: “I have played her at the Denmark Open last, she is quick and aggressive and it would be a challenging match for me and I will just look to give my best.” — PTI

Sindhu defeated Okuhara 21-17, 21-19 in a 58-minute quarterfinal match to set up a semifinal clash against World No. 2 and another Japanese Akane Yamaguchi on Saturday.

Sindhu beat Yamaguchi. They have changed her game mercifully from last year. She is now going more for finishing shots rather than long drawn rallies (whose idea was it?). She will meet a back-to-form Carolina Marin. I hope Sindhu finishes it this time.

The Indian women hockey team have done well but lack confidence to go higher up. They botched up the penalty shoot-out against Ireland. Didn't look hungry enough. Their ranking will improve. Hope they go for the AG gold. I feel that IHL should look at parallel hockey league for women. Nothing like professionalism in sport.

Sjoerd Marijne is doing a good job as ladies hockey coach. The ladies team was hardly the best in Asia even a short 1-2 years ago. Now they're able to handle muscular teams like UK and USA . Irish are stronger than their ranking suggests - they have won their semifinal against Spain, again in shootout. I'm sure in AG setting they have it in them to be confident to go for gold. All other teams will know India drew the current Olympic champion (UK) and almost beat the current world cup finalist (and potentially winner) Ireland.

As someone mentioned Sindhu needs a good sports psychologist. She lost another final. Botched up good lead in the 1st, crumbled in the 2nd.

Very disappointed. Sindhu needs to calm down. She should not get intimidated by Carolina Marin.

It is not Carolina Marin. The pressure of being the No 1 is getting into her head. She needs Yoga, meditation and a good sports psychologist.

Sindhu lost, Not surprising at all. Have been following her since 2012 china masters and what surprising is how little of her game has changed. It's the same clears and the dud power shots in the middle of the court, only addition to her game is her physique. She's got one of the worst racket skills in not just top 10 but top 20. And the less said about her footwork the better. She still plays the 2008ish game with the added physicality.

I thought the World Championship loss would give her and her coaches a wake up call to improve her racket skill. But very little has changed. She has the physique and the power shots but the crucial thing she lacks is her racket skill.

In a match her skilled shots are numbered in a single digit and many of them turn out to be errors, whenever she's asked to play an elementary level technical shot she makes an error, on the other hand girls like Okuhara, Yamaguchi, Yufei, Bingjiao, tai tzu ying execute almost every shot with the remarkable racket skill.


Kidambi has the world champion attack and the racket skills but what he lacks is a world champion defence and the world champion composure.

It is largely mental. She played really well against Yamaguchi and Okuhara. After several losses in finals she is weighed down by the thought "not again" the moment she is under pressure in finals. She needs psychological and meditational training. It is too late to drastically change her game.

Valencia (Spain), August 6

India notched up one of its most memorable football triumphs when the country’s under-20 team stunned traditional giants Argentina 2-1 despite being reduced to 10 men in a pulsating contest at the COTIF Cup here.

Deepak Tangri (4th minute) and Anwar Ali (68’) were the stars for the Indian U-20 team last night as the Floyd Pinto-coached side scripted a historic result against the six-time U-20 world champions, coached by 2006 World Cupper Lionel Scaloni and former mid-field star Pablo Aimar.

It was a massive boost for Pinto’s side, which had lost 0-2 to Murcia before going down 0-3 to Mauritania. They were held to a goalless draw by Venezuela in their previous match in the tournament.

“This victory will definitely earn Indian football more respect in the world of football. It opens up a window of opportunity to test ourselves against the best in the world on a regular basis,” Pinto said after the match.

“It’s unbelievable! I am a very proud Indian today. This win is a testament to the efforts and belief of the All India Football Federation in moving forward towards developing the youth of the country.

“We have a renewed belief that with the right support and exposure we are capable to compete with the best teams in the world,” he added.

Tangri gave India a perfect start as he headed the ball at the back of the net from a corner taken by Ninthoiganba Meetei in the fourth minute.

Boosted by the early goal, India stepped up the attack and tried to create chances in the first half.

Suresh Singh Wangjam and Boris Singh Thangjam tried to feed Aniket Jadhav with the ball but on two occasions he was adjudged off-side as after the first half, India lead 1-0.

In the second half, Ali squandered an opportunity after he received a pass from captain Amarjit Singh Kiyam but his shot was saved by the Argentine goalkeeper.

India U-20 side was soon reduced to 10 men after forward Jadhav was shown the red card in the 54th minute for a bad foul.

With Argentina trying to make inroads, India goalkeeper Prabhsukhan Gill pulled off a couple of brilliant saves in the 56th minute and another with his fingertips in the 61st minute.

India continued to look for another goal and a brilliantly struck free-kick taken by Anwar Ali in the 68th gave the Asian side a 2-0 lead.

It was a foul on substitute Rahim Ali which resulted in the set-piece and Ali’s shot hit inside of the woodwork before nestling in the Argentine goal.

Four minutes later, Argentina pulled one back but the Indian colts held their nerves in the remaining minutes to create history on Spanish soil.

“The one thing missing from our continued development through this tournament were goals. I am really happy the boys adapted so quickly and effectively to the changes we made post our first gamer. I just couldn’t have asked for a better reaction,” the India coach said.

“The bench was understandably ecstatic yet calm as there was a lot of football yet to be played. Deepak Tangri’s goal was one of a sheer determination while Anwar Ali’s free-kick was of the highest order. We wanted to put in a performance that would make people forget about our previous game against Venezuela U-20 and the boys managed to do that.”

Interestingly, this win comes weeks after national coach Stephen Constantine criticised the Indian team’s performance at the U-17 World Cup, describing it mediocre and the hype surrounding as unjustified.

The Indian team was also not allowed to participate in the Asian Games after being denied clearance by the Indian Olympic Association (IOA). PTI

I think we are getting too carried away. Argentina had already won the group and this match was of no consequence.With the semifinals being played the next day they rested starters, hence they were playing with low intensity. India was already at the bottom of the group after loosing 2 matches.

A memorable win's a memorable win. Especially when it involves juniors for whom inspiration towards greater things is built upon any news-making accomplishment. Give those kids their time to rejoice rather than get in the way with such details. Sporting success is built upon intangible inspirations, not some 'but but but' facts. It should be fairly obvious just from the discussion of Sindhu's inability to close out the deal on the big stage, that sport is about far more than just factual detail.
