India’s top singles player Yuki Bhambri is just one win away from making it to the main draw of Australian Open after a commanding second round win at the Qualifiers on Friday.

The 15th seed Yuki totally dominated his opponent (world number 183) Carlos Taberner by defeating him in just under an hour by 6-0, 6-2.

As the score line suggests, the top-ranked Indian singles player breezed through winning 74% of his first serve points and 82% on second serve, converting six out of eight break points while giving away only one of two.

Another Indian fighting for the main draw, Ramkumar Ramanathan (World no. 139) will play France’s Gleb Sakharov(World no. 156) in his second round match.
