Chennai-based Ramanathan Ramkumar made tennis fans take notice with an upset of world No. 8 Dominic Thiem, which many, including former India Davis Cup player Ramesh Krishnan think could be the beginning of big things for him.

He was all praise for Ramkumar's win over Thiem in the Anatlya Open recently and said it would have been nice if he had won the next match against Marcos Baghdatis (in the quarter-finals).

"The win over Thiem is Ramkumar's biggest win. I hope he can build on that. Too bad he could not get past Baghdatis," said Krishnan.
