ESPOO: With the match decided in Finland's favour, Prajnesh Gunneswaran defeated Patrik Niklas-Salminen to win a consolation point for the visitors in their Davis Cup World Group 1 First Round encounter to make the scoreline 1-3 at the Espoo Metro Areena on Saturday.

Gunneswaran won 6-3, 7-5 in just over an hour against the 24-year-old reserve player of Finland who is ranked 491 in the world. But by time Gunneswaran took to the court for the first reverse singles tie, India's hopes in the match had already ended with Finland taking an unassailable 3-0 lead by winning the doubles encounter earlier in the morning.
