Yuki in 2nd round in Lexington Challenger
Coming back to complete on Wednesday’s unfinished business, Yuki was dominant on day two of his rain-hit match as he conceded only two games. He was 4-4 when the match began and he ran away with a 7-5 6-1 win in the opening round.
Yuki and Ramkumar could have clashed in the second round but for <g data-gr-id="19">brilliance</g> of Briton Brydan Klein, who defeated the latter 6-3 6-3 in the other first round match.
Yuki now remains the sole Indian in the singles event as Saketh Myneni has also already exited following a 2-6 1-6 defeat against seventh seed Briton Liam Broady.
In the doubles, Myneni and Ramkumar have already reached the quarterfinals with their respective partners.
Myneni and Bulgaria’s Dimitar Kutrovsky knocked out the <g data-gr-id="17">top seeded</g> Australian pair of Alex Bolt and Andrew Whittington 7-5 5-7 10-7 in their opening round.
Ramkumar and his Australian partner John Millman routed American wild cards Sam Barnett and Jesse Witten 6-0 6-0.
