Two HUGE Victories for Yuki Bhambri in Two Days, reaches Quarterfinals of ATP Citi Open HUGE Victories for Yuki Bhambri in Two Days, reaches Quarterfinals of ATP Citi Open

Yuki Bhambri carried his momentum from yesterday to stun yet another higher ranked player to book his place in the quarters of ATP Citi Open, Washington.

Bhambri who stunned the tennis world after getting the better of Defending Champion & World no.22 Gael Monfils yesterday, made an epic comeback today to seal the victory against G.Pella of Argentina by 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-1.

Bhambri, who entered the Citi Open as a qualifier, finds himself in elite company in the ATP 500 event s he reaches the “Last 8” & now he will be up against 15th seed Kevin Anderson of South Africa who shocked no.1 seed Dominic Thiem in a nail-biting contest.

World no. 200 Yuki started well against World no.100 but there was nothing much to differentiate between the two players in the first set. The things stretched into the tie-breaker where Argentine had the last laugh as he took the first set by 7-6(5). Bhambri cameback strongly in the second set & broke the service of Pella to take lead by 4-2, which was easily converted into 6-3 by Indian to level the things.

Yuki Bhambri was totally dominating in the decider set, he gave no chance to his opponent & broke the service of Argentine twice to make a comfortable lead over World no. 100 & won the match by 6-7(5), 6-3, 6-1.

After bagging the biggest victory of his life yesterday over Defending Champion, Yuki said, “This was definitely the biggest win of my career. He was the defending champion, so I knew I had nothing to lose. I never felt bogged down by the idea that I was playing a top-ranked player. I did not put any pressure on myself. My goal was to stay close to him and pounce on every opportunity. Thankfully my plan paid off,” the 25-year old told TOI from Washington on Thursday.

Elaborating on the win, he said: “I took my chances, went for the shots and attacked when I had to. I came to the net when I felt it was right. My first serves were good too and I think that everything just fell into place today.”
