MIAMI: Yuki Bhambri continued his impressive run, beating Bosnia’s Mirza Basic in straight sets in the first round of the Miami Masters, on Friday.
It was the second meeting between the 25-year-old Indian and the world number 75 Basic, who had beaten Yuki in 2016.
The Indian Davis Cupper will now face world number 11 and eighth seed American Jack Sock in the next round. This will be the first meeting between the two.
Yuki, ranked 107 had qualified for the ATP 1000 series main draw with a 7-5, 6-2 win over Sweden’s Elias Ymer in the second and final qualifying round.
Yuki, of late, has created excellent results against top players as he registered the biggest win of his career, shocked world number 12 Lucas Pouille in the second round of Indian Wells Masters.
