Sumit Nagal loses 2-6, 0-6, 6-7: Highlights

Sumit Nagal today faced the formidable Karen Khachanov, world No. 18, in the first round of Roland-Garros 2024

In a match often disrupted by rain, the Russian came out of the blocks strong from the first set.

Thereafter, for much of the first set and throughout the second set, it was all one-sided with Khachanov storming through.

Nagal had no response to the Russian's big blow.

In the 3rd set however, the Indian found some sort of rhythm. He was able to pull off winners with his valuable forehand and pushed Khachanov deep.

In the tie-break, Nagal had his moments and achieved a mini-break. But the Russian's power was such that in big moments, Khachanov pulled winners out of his hat at will.

Nagal will be reassured by a spirited show during the final set and will now turn his attention to the grass season.
