In Tennis, three Indians, Vijay Sundar Prashanth, Arjun Khade and Sumit Nagal advanced to the second round in men's singles main draw on the opening day of Chennai Open ATP Challenger in Chennai on Monday.

Wild card entrant and local player Vijay Sundar Prashanth stole the show with a 6-2, 2-6, 6-2 win over Carlos Boluda-Purkiss of Spain in three sets.

In other matches, Khade breezed past Ivan Nedelko of Russia 6-4, 6-1, while Nagal made short work of David Perez Sanz of Spain in straight sets.

Nagal will take on eighth seed Duckhee Lee of Korea in the next round. Prashanth will clash with compatriot and 11th-seed Saket Myneni in the second round.

All eyes will be on India's top singles player Prajnesh Gunneswaran when he takes on Daniel Altmaier of Germany on Wednesday. A win in front of his home crowd could help Chennai left-hander Prajnesh, ranked 102, break into the top 100 for the first time in his career.
