Sumit Nagal Impressed in NYC

Ah, the huge, ancient country of India. We speak an Indo-European language. We calculate in “Arabic” numerals that actually originated in India.

Blazing through the qualifying rounds of the US Open was a player few of us recognized, not the Spaniard, Nadal, but the Indian, Sumit Nagal. At 5 ft. 10 inches he was not visually impressive.

Then he walked on center court with Federer last night. His speed was impressive. Sumit was crafty per Roger. His forehand was big.

Bottom line. He had been a journeyman traveling all over the world to get to net zero this year. He left the court fifty eight thousand dollars richer having taken Fed to four. That is what they call, “Grace Under Pressure.”
