Wimbledon 2021: Ramkumar Ramanathan One Win Away From Main Draw
London: India’s Ramkumar Ramanathan is only one win away from his maiden Grand Slam appearance as he progressed to the final round of the Wimbledon Qualifiers.
Ramkumar, who gradually slipped out of the top-200 for lack of good results, beat Tomas Martin Etcheverry with 6-3, 6-4 scoreline.
Ramanathan did not face a single break point in the match and broke Etcheverry twice in the second round match that lasted 59 minutes.
The 26-year old will now meet Australia’s 32nd seed Marc Polmans.
The closest he has come to qualifying for a major before this effort was in 2018 when he reached the third round of the Australian Open qualifiers.
On the other hand, Prajnesh Gunneswaran and Ankita Raina have exited from Qualifiers.
