Sumit Nagal US Open 2020

India’s Sumit Nagal reached the second round of the 2020 US Open on Tuesday by defeating USA’s Bradley Klahn 6-1, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1. He became the first Indian since Somdev Devvarman (2013 US Open) to win a match in the main draw of a Grand Slam.

World No 124 Nagal, who made his Grand Slam debut as a qualifer at US Open last year, grabbed headlines last year for taking a first set off 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer in their first-round match at Flushing Meadows.

The India No 1, a direct entry this year, will now face second seed Dominic Thiem, who went through after his opponent – Spain’s Jaume Munar – retired while trailing 6-7, 3-6.
