Despite taking lead against Thomas Fabbiano by winning the first set 6-2, Yuki Bhambri succumbed to the Italian losing the next three 3-6, 3-6, 2-6. Bhambri, who is ranked 85 in the world, was the only Indian star participating in the singles draw of the third Grand Slam of the year.
Grabbing a lead against Thomas Fabbiano in the first round meant nothing significant as Bhambri was unsuccessful in keeping a firm hold on the proceedings. He lost his first round 6-2, 3-6, 3-6, 2-6. Including this year, Bhambri has successfully appeared five times in the main draw of Wimbledon, but he has not been able to add a win to his name.
Bhambri, however, is completely determined to break against the consecutive defeat records. He believes that he has a lot of work to do, but he said that he is moving in the right direction.
“I just look at them as defeats
“Playing at Wimbledon is something that I have always looked forward to so I was a little nervous coming into the match. I enjoyed the experience. It’s been a lifetime dream to be able to come here. I was really excited to play but I am just disappointed I couldn’t get the win."
Optimistic about the course of events taking place, Bhambri is working with coach Stephen Koon at his academy in Bangkok. He feels he is getting better as a player and is determined to invest his efforts and energy to further improve himself.
