India’s no.1 singles player Yuki Bhambri has made it into the main draw of Australian Open after beating Canada’s Peter Polanksy 1-6, 6-3, 6-3 in the final qualifying round in Melbourne on Sunday

Indian came from behind to beat the World no. 140 Peter Polansky in a match which lasted one hour and 55 minutes.

The 25-year-old, ranked 122nd in the world, struggled with his serve in the opening set and could only hold on to one service game before Polanksy won the set with ease.

Hwever, Yuki bounced back in the second set & his fortunes suddenly changed as his first serve win percentage rose from 29 to 75 and he did not drop a single point on his second serve and went on to break the Canadian twice to force a decider.

In the third & final set, Yuki again as far better than his opponent & grabbed the only break point that came his way to book his berth in the main draw of year’s first Grand Slam Australian Open.

Ramkumar Ramanathan will fight for his spot in the main draw against higher ranked Vasek Pospisil of Canada.

India’s Davis Cup captain Mahesh Bhupathi wanted to see two Indians fighting in the main draw of Australian Open & this looks realistic now.

At that level every match is a battle,” Mahesh Bhupathi. “Let them take one step at a time, but it will be great to see two of them qualify.”
