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.
