Mukund is playing in the German Challenger and facing a local wild-card player.

At €46K+H Augsburg Challenger 2019, Germany

[R1] Sasikumar Mukund (IND,275) vs (WC) Daniel Altmaier (GER,414)
D Altmaier is a very talented player, has great support, and is coming back from an injury. So, I wouldn't look too much into his current ranking and expect this to be an easy win for Sasikumar.

Mukund beat Evan King 46 75 63.

He gets just 4 more points (7 total) for making the last 16. This is a crazy system!

LOL. How about PKB running the tennis governing bodies and managing our players' career? A win is a win - celebrate it!

Also, breaks a 8 game losing streak for Mukund. Hopefully, he can go at least one round further here...
