The Uberoi Sisters

I figured it was time we start a thread for the new American sister tandem on the scene... the Uberoi sisters Neha and Shikha!

Shikha has exploded this summer, winning a couple of futures tournaments along the way. Now she is on fire at the US Open:

[Q1] d. Ivana Abramovic (CRO, 177) 61 62
[Q2] d. (15) Anne Kremer (LUX, 121) 64 76(9)
[Q3] d. (29) Vilmarie Castellvi (PUR, 137) 64 62
[R1] d. Saori Obata (JPN, 56) 63 36 75

Wow. Her point total was 89 coming in to the Open, and has now doubled to 177. Her ranking was 275 at the start of the Open, and has now moved up to ~177 in the world as well. Amazing run for Shikha, and deserved.

As for Neha, she lost in the first round of qualies, but is in the doubles main draw with Shikha. Neha, of course, is the winner of the Luxilon Junior Tournament this past March, where she beat such names as Karatantcheva and Vaidisova.

Clearly the future is bright for these two!
