India’s Prajnesh Gunneswaran advanced to the second round of the French Open men’s singles qualifying event, while the country’s top player Sumit Nagal was knocked out.

Prajnesh Gunneswaran, India’s second-highest ranked singles player, shrugged off a slow start to prevail 6-3 6-1 against Turkey’s Cem Ilkel after losing his service early in his opening qualifier of the clay court Grand Slam.

Sumit Nagal, on the other hand, lost 6-7 (4) 5-7 to Germany’s Dustin Brown in a match that was a lot closer than what the scoreline suggests.

Nagal, who was seeded 16th over here at the Roland Garros, had his chances in the second set as he was leading 3-0 but Brown did not let him continue with the momentum.

Just two weeks ago, Nagal 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

Another Indian featuring in the qualifying draw is Ramkumar Ramanathan, who is up against local wildcard Tristan Lamasine.
