Yuki Bhambri

The former junior World No. 1, Yuki Bhambri will play a crucial part in the Davis Cup 2022 representing India. The 30-year-old junior Australian Open champion will be the top and tough player to look up to.

His success in a few handfuls of doubles matches previously has given him and all Indian tennis fans hope for his win. Bhambri, along with his partner, Myeni had grasped a couple of men’s doubles titles in the last two months at Challengers.

we’ve had success, sometimes we haven’t. for me it’s motivation, but we have to give the best we can. if we do not play to the best of our abilities, i see no reason why we shouldn’t progress.

Prajnesh Gunneswaran

The 32-year-old, Prajnesh Gunneswaran will be the second-eyed player for Team India. Meanwhile, Gunneswaran has 8 ITF singles titles along with 1 ITF doubles. In addition, he also has achieved two ATP Challengers titles, which is something remarkable for the Indian.

At the 2019 US Open, Prajnesh Gunneswar successfully qualified for the main draws and faced Daniil Medvedev in the first round.

Gunneswaran ranked 335 currently, will be looking for a path to rise in performance after not-so-impressive results in the past few tournaments. Even though he had consecutive two defeats in the Challengers, he still imposes the heat to give tough competition to Norwegians. He will face the reigning US Open 2022 finalist, Casper Ruud of Norway in the first Group stage match on 16, September.

He can be looked after in the 2022 Davis Cup as a crucial part of the play. Prajnesh Gunneswaran will also face Durasovic in the second singles match on 17 September 2022.
