Saketh Myneni was handed a tough tie on Saturday as he has been pitted against experienced seventh seed Mikhail Youzhny in his singles opening round of the ATP Chennai Open even as local boy Ramkumar Ramanathan drew a yet-to-be-decided qualifier, here on Saturday.

It will not be a smooth road for Ramkumar since he is set to play two seeded players — Benoit Paire (ranked 47) and Aljaz Bedene (101) — if he gets past the qualifier.

In the doubles, India’s top pair of Rohan Bopanna and Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan will take on Marcelo Demoliner of Brazil and Croatia s Nikola Mektic.

The other pair of Purav Raja and Divij Sharan, however, will run into countryman Leander Paes and his Brazilian partner Andre Sa.
