Kolkata Open: Ramkumar Ramanathan In Quarters

Share

A day after shocking the India number one Somdev Devvarman, Ramkumar Ramanathan continued his sizzling run at the Kolkata Open by booking his place in the quarter-finals. He registered a 6-1, 5-7, 7-5 victory over Serbian Miki Jankovic at the Bengal Tennis Association (BTA) complex on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Delhi Open runner-up Yuki Bhambri bowed out in the pre-quarters. He lost in three sets to sixth-seeded Radu Albot. Sanam Singh’s run also ended in the same round.

Ramkumar Ramanathan continues his brilliant run

Ramkumar seemed very confident after Tuesday’s win over Somdev as he played big shots from the very first point and also refused to go slow on his serves. Breaking Jankovic twice in the opening set, the world number 267 took a huge lead of 5-0 in no time. Ramkumar clinched the first set 6-1.

The second set progressed with hold of serves as the Serbian seemed more composed and patient. At 5-6, Ramkumar faltered while serving as Jankovic played some great returns to break the Indian and take the set 7-5.

In the third, Ramkumar Ramanathan opened the set by breaking Miki Jankovic and took a 3-1 lead. The Chennai player, however, could not hold on to his lead as he dropped his own serve in the 8th game, thereby levelling the set at 4-4.

In the 11th game, Ramkumar was finally able to break Jankovic and lead by 6-5. In the final game, Ramkumar was 30-0 up but served 2 consecutive double faults to make it 30-30, thereby giving a scare to the silent audience who were desperately waiting to see an Indian face in the next round. Ramkumar proved to be too strong for his opponent in the next two points as he not only served big but also played powerful shots to win the 2hr 12min match 6-1, 5-7, 7-5.

Yuki Bhambri goes down in three sets

Yuki Bhambri went down in three sets to sixth seeded Radu Albot of Maldova, much to the dismay of the crowd. Yuki failed to start strong as he kept dropping his serves in the opening set, which included the first game as well, thereby losing it by 3-6.

In the second set, the 22-year-old Indian seemed to have gathered some confidence thinking about his straight-set victory against Albot in the Delhi Open. The Delhi lad played almost flawless to quickly win the set by 6-2, breaking the world number 164 thrice.

In the decider, Yuki Bhambri not only struggled to keep the balls in play but also overhit a few times, thereby helping his opponent win free points. Very quickly, the world number 297 went down to 0-5 and soon enough, Radu Albot wrapped up the match with a 6-3, 2-6, 6-1 victory.

Sanam Singh exits

Wildcard entrant Sanam Singh lost to the top-seeded James Duckworth of Australia by an easy 2-6, 1-6 scoreline.

Somdev in doubles semis

Somdev Devvarman delighted the fans with his win in doubles on Wednesday. Devvarman who has paired up with compatriot Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan, reached the semi-finals by beating the Croatian pair of Dino Marcan and Antonio Sancic 6-4, 6-2.
