At Antalya Open, Antalya, Turkey (ATP 250)

Mukund played Harri in 2019 challenger in Australia and lost. Hope he is able to do better today.

Mukund is playing in a $15K ITF event this week in Egypt. He’s the top seed in the singles draw and starts against a qualifier in the opening round.

I hope he gets back to some form... Just not a great start. I don't want to start calling him Sasi again :(

There was a huge contingent of Indians in this tournament, several of whom (Niki Poonacha, Nitin Sinha among others) played the qualifiers. None made the final round of qualifying. Everybody seems rusty. Hopefully, they will do better next week.

In fact Manish Sureshkumar , Sid Rawat , Nitin Kumar Sinha etc, have been playing there for last 3 weeks but just could not post too may wins at all, none going beyond first round of main draw at best. So,not really rustiness. It has been disappointing peformance by these guys.

Note that the Indians have likely been doing less over the last year than at least the players from the developed countries given the paucity of good training facilities in India. So, they are likely still working back to physical and game fitness even if they have played a couple of weeks given that they have been relatively inactive for such a long time previous to that.

This week, Mukund tried to qualify for the main draw since he wasn’t originally in the entry list but fell short in the last round. Seems like, nobody wants to win against lower ranked opponents this week. :damn:

R3 [1] Sasikumar Mukund (311) 6-4 4-6 10-12 SamuelVincent Ruggeri (ITA, NR)
R2 [1] Sasikumar Mukund (311) 4-6 6-2 10-5 Pavle Daljev (SRB,1627)
R1 Bye

Sad to see these disastrous results. Mukund is going to struggle to retain his ranking.
