Prakash crashes out of Aus Open qualifiers

Melbourne: Prakash Amritraj's seven-year wait to feature in the singles main draw of a Grand Slam event continued as he crashed out of the Australian Open qualifiers after suffering a straight set defeat here on Thursday.

Unseeded Amritraj went down fighting 5-7, 4-6 against French 25th seed Edouard Roger-Vasselin in the second round.

Amritraj last played in a Grand Slam in 2002 when he made the US Open main draw as a wild card entrant.

Yuki Bhambri has already exited following his first round defeat.

Now India's hopes to see a player competing in the singles event of the first Grand Slam of the season are resting on Somdev Devvarman who will play his second round on Friday.

He is up against Germany's Tobias Kamke.
