Ramkumar, Ankita fail to qualify for French Open

Paris, May 26

Ankita Raina’s yet another attempt to qualify for the singles main draw of a Grand Slam failed as she bowed out of the French Open qualifiers with a second round defeat here today.

Ankita, up against higher-ranked Belgian Greet Minnen, could win only two games in the entire match that lasted one hour and 21 minutes. The 125th-ranked Indian converted only one of the three break points and eventually lost 2-6 0-6.

It was her seventh attempt to crack the singles main draw of a Major.

Another Indian, Ramkumar Ramanathan, lost in the second round of men’s singles qualifiers. The 215th-ranked Ramanathan lost 1-6 2-6 to world No. 33 and Asian Games champion Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan. — Agencies
