Cycle Pure Agarbathi ITF Mysuru Open 2023: Mukund Sasikumar moves into singles quarterfinals

March 31, 2023

India’s Mukund Sasikumar stormed into the singles quarterfinals of Cycle Pure Agarbathi ITF Mysuru Open 2023 with a smooth 6-1, 6-2 victory over compatriot Faisal Qamar at the Mysore Tennis Club (MTC) premises yesterday.

Mukund Sasikumar partnered with Vishnu Vardhan in the doubles but their quarterfinal match against Indians Faisal Qamar and Fardeen Quamar was postponed to Friday. Mukund and Vishnu were leading 7-6, 1-1.

It was Sasikumar’s second match of the day as the fourth seeded Indian earlier had to complete his last evenings’ Round of 32 draw against Serbia’s Boris Butulija.

Rain had interrupted the match on Wednesday evening when Sasikumar was leading the match 2-1 in the first set, and the Indian took the match to its logical conclusion with a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 win.

Mysuru lad S.D. Prajwal Dev overcame compatriot Vishnu Vardhan 6-4, 7-6 (6) to grab a berth in the quarterfinals.

In the doubles, top-seeded Indians B. Rithvick Choudary and Niki Poonacha moved into semi- finals after getting better of Indo- French pair of Nitin Kumar Sinha and Florent Bax 6-3, 7-6 (3).

Earlier, fourth seeded Indian pair of Parikshit Somani and Manish Sureshkumar defeated American duo of Dali Blanch and Nicholas Bybel 6-3, 6-7 (5), 12-10 to enter the semifinals.
