India F10 Futures, Gulbarga - Day 2 Results

Croatia's Ivan Cerovic, runner-up at the India F9 Futures (Bellary) last week, had trouble getting past Indian prodigy Yuki Bhambri in the first round at Gulbarga.

The 15-year-old Bhambri made sure the third-seeded Croatian sweated it out for a 7-6(8),4-6,7-6(6) win and that too after the teenager had missed a couple of matchpoints.

Bhambri's gritty performance against a player ranked one thousand places above him on the ATP list marks him out as a future hope for India.

There were no major surprises on Day 2 of the India F10 Futures though some matches were abandoned after a sudden spell of rain.
