Sri Lanka defeats Mexico, 4-1!!
Mexico has a strong doubles team, presently they are the 7th-ranked duo in the world. But aside from that, this was a pretty easy win. It also clinched first place in the group and a spot in the knockout rounds, since Sri Lanka now has two wins. Mexico and Italy both have one each, but we've beaten both of them. So no matter what happens in what should be another easy victory against Denmark, we're through.
We've moved up to 10th now. Starting to get to some heady territory. A little behind Mexico still. We're actually not all that far behind third place, it's pretty bunched up after the Czechs and Americans at the top. Some other dominoes will fall as the year rolls on.
Coming Up ...
And now we're back up to current events. The break leading up to the IW/Miami Masters is upon us. Girsh and Mehul will both be playing a 500-level event in the interim but it will still be a month of mostly down time.
