French Open 2020: Prajnesh crashes out in second round of qualifiers

Prajnesh lost 4-6 6-7(4) against Vukic to bow out of the event

India’s Prajnesh Gunneswaran crashed out in the second round of the men’s singles qualifiers of the French Open after losing in straight sets to Aleksandar Vukic of Australia here on Wednesday.

Prajnesh, India’s second-highest ranked singles player who got the better of Turkey’s Cem Ilkel in the opening round, lost 4-6 6-7(4) against Vukic to bow out of the event.

The other two Indians in the fray – the country’s top singles player Sumit Nagal and Ramkumar Ramanathan – bowed out in the first round of the qualifying event.

While the 16th seed Nagal, who became the first Indian in seven years to win a singles match at a Grand Slam with his opening round victory at the US Open, lost 6-7 (4) 5-7 to Germany’s seasoned player Dustin Brown, Ramanathan was shown the door by local wildcard Tristan Lamasine 5-7 2-6.
