I do not have the word to tell happiness: Pranjesh

Earlier, Somdev Devvarman and Yuki Bhambri have played in the Grand Slam men's singles main draw. Yuki has played four grand slams in 2018 before his knee injury. Somdev has now retired. He played his last match at the 2013 US Open.

Pranjesh said, 'I am very happy. I reached the main draw of a Grand Slam for the first time. This has always been my dream. I do not have words to talk about, but this will be a big deal for me. '

Pranjesh will open the Australian Open with a match against the 39th American player Frances Tiafoe in the world rankings. If they beat this American player, then their next match could be from world number 6 player and Wimbledon financier Kevin Anderson.
