Looks like this year's AO will have to factor in the polluted air resulting out of the bushfires.

Ramkumar takes a 4-2 lead in the first set against 15th seed Federico Coria (ARG, 118).

Update: Ramkumar takes the first set 6-4 after som intervening drama.

Topsyturvy first set. From 4-2, RamK got broken back to be 4-4 and faced a bp in ninth game. He saved that to hold and then in the next game from 40-15 down took the next 4 points to break and take the first set 6-4. :D

Thanks Rajiv

RamK gets broken in the first game of the decider. Can't believe it, but this has been a pattern of lately.

Coria gets another break. The timing of Ram's approach to the net is counterproductive. He isn't in proper position by the time he gets to hit while opponent is well positioned to jam him up, catch him on the wrong foot

Looking all downhill for Ram in the 3rd set .
Age old adage , cannot consolidate when he is in front and instead simply caves in.
And here in this match the Argentinian was already at a disadvantage , exclusively being a clay courter and was most uncomfortable than Ram, gasping for breath in the polluted environment

Praj match has begun. He has taped up his left hand at elbow as well as wrist. Still, up a break 2-0 in the first set.

[Q1] 17-Prajnesh Gunneswaran (IND,122) d. WC-Harry Bourchier (AUS,286) 62 64

The match lasted just 62 minutes. A clinical demolition job by Prajnesh!

Disappointing loss for Ram after a good start ... Ankita failed to adjust to Tomova's game, but a promising start for Prajnesh ... Next, he is facing a big-server German, Yannick Hanfmann.

[Q2] (17) Prajnesh Gunneswaran (IND,124) vs Yannick Hanfmann (GER,167)
