Yuki Bhambri suffers defeat on comeback, out of European Open

Vastavam web: Yuki Bhambri’s comeback to the ATP circuit after recovering from a knee injury didn’t go well as he suffered a first-round defeat at the European Open in Antwerp, Belgium. Playing his first match after the US Open in August, Yuki lost 6-7(6) 7-5 1-6 to Italian Salvatore Caruso in the Euro 686,080 hard court tournament. At one stage Yuki was a break up, serving for the opening set but lost his serve and eventually the set. After drawing parity, Yuki twice lost his serve to fall behind 0-3 in the decisive set and never recovered. He broke into the top-100 in October 2015 but then missed out half of the 2016 season due to injury. He got back in good shape and reclaimed his place in top-100 in April this year, but injuries once again pulled him back.
