Yuki, Mukund, Prajnesh face tricky opponents

Chennai, Dec 30:
India’s Yuki Bhambri and Sasi Kumar Mukund will face tricky opponents when the Aircel Chennai Open begins with the qualifying rounds here tomorrow.
Yuki found himself pitted against Italy’s Marco Cecchinato while Mukund against Argentina’s Nicolas Kicker when lots were drawn for the qualifiers today.
The two young Indian stars, who have been given wild cards, know that it won’t be a smooth ride as Cecchinato and Kicker have been hovering close to the top-100 mark for some time now.
Yuki is also returning from injury and will be careful not to make the same mistake that he did last year, attempting a return when he hadn’t fully recovered. He has been training in Thailand and even participated in a warmup tournament in Hong Kong to be match ready.(PTI)
