NEW YORK: India tennis star Sumit Nagal has gained direct entry into this year's US Open men's singles draw after a string a top-ranked players pulled out of the competition citing coronavirus concerns.

Nagal sneaked through as top 128 ranked ATP players made the cut with the 22-year-old ranked at 127 in the world currently. He remains the only Indian to make the cut. Nagal, last year, caught the imagination of tennis fans worldwide, following his courageous performance against 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer. In the first round at Arthur Ashe Stadium in 2019, Nagal took a set off Federer before going down 6-4, 1-6, 2-6, 4-6 against the Swiss star. (IANS)
