On a day, when Mukund's first serve wasn't working too well (at 45%), Mukund managed to win!

[Q2] Sasi Kumar Mukund (IND,390) d (7) Renta Tokuda (JPN,332) 4-6 6-1 7-5

Next up is 20 year Wu who upset the third seed in straight sets in Q2. Let's hope that Mukund rediscovers his first serve in Q3.

[FQR] Sasi Kumar Mukund (IND,390) vs Tung-Lin Wu (TPE, 471)

Unfortunately, Mukund could not qualify for the main draw.

At $50K+H Shymkent Challenger 2018, Kazakhstan (Clay)

[FQR] Sasi Kumar Mukund (IND,390) l. Tung-Lin Wu (TPE, 471) 64 36 26

Again only 47% first served in which proved to be his undoing.

Sumit is playing here but I feel he should have played Nottingham qualifying to gain grass court experience before big W qualifying ... Some strange planning by our players.

At $50K+H Almaty Challenger 2018, Kazakhstan

[R1] Sumit Nagal (IND,) vs (8) Uladzimir Ignatik (BLR,202)

Truly asinine planning just before Wimbledon, both from the perspective of the surface and the distance from SW19!
