Indian tennis player Ramkumar Ramanathan wins maiden singles title on ATP Challenger Tour


Indian tennis player Ramkumar Ramanathan won his maiden Challenger level singles title after 12 years turning a Pro. He outplayed Evgeny Karlovskiy in the summit clash of the ATP 80 Manama event, in Manama, Bahrain

The 27-year-old Ramkumar, who had lost six Challenger finals in his career before, beat his Russian rival 6-1 6-4. Ramkumar, seeded sixth and ranked 222 in the world, sealed the first set when the Russian’s backhand return sailed over the baseline.


This was after Ramkumar saved a breakpoint against Karlovskiy, ranked 302 in the world. The 80 ranking points earned will push Ramkumar back into top-200 and also make him the highest-ranked Indian on the ATP singles ranking chart.
