India’s top-ranked singles player Sumit Nagal was handed a tough opening round at the French Open as he is set to face World No. 18 Karen Khachanov of Russia here on Sunday.


World No. 94 Nagal earned a direct entry into the main draw of the Grand Slam after his consistent performances on the tour. He became the first Indian male player to qualify for the French Open main draw since Prajnesh Gunneswaran in 2019.


Nagal, 26, has not been in the best of form leading up to the clay Grand Slam. He lost to Holger Rune in the third round of the Monte Carlo Masters, before missing the Madrid and Rome Masters.
