Ankita Raina remains the lone Indian hope alive in the singles qualifying event

By Saurabh Singh | AITA

Ankita Raina, India’s highest-ranked female tennis player, is now the only Indian alive in the singles qualifying competition at this year’s clay-court Grand Slam – the French Open 2020.

After coming through a marathon two hour 47 minutes long tie in her opening round against Serbia’s Jovana Jovic, Raina is slated to next take on Japan’s Kurumi Nara, seeded 22nd.

The second-round clash between the 176th ranked Indian and the 148th ranked Japanese is scheduled to take place today at 1:30 pm IST.
