NEW DELHI: India’s tennis duo of Ramkumar Ramanathan and Saketh Myneni on Thursday secured their place in the men’s doubles final by defeating the resilient Korean team of Seongchan Hong and Soonwoo Kwon.
While the Koreans initially struggled, losing the first set in a rather uneventful fashion, they fought back vigorously.
However, Myneni and Ramkumar displayed exceptional composure and determination, ultimately prevailing with a scoreline of 6-1, 6-7(8), and a commanding 10-0 victory in the semifinals.

In the upcoming gold medal match, the Indian team will face off against the representatives from Chinese Taipei, who advanced by defeating Thailand.
India had won the men’s doubles title in the last edition in Indonesia with Rohan Bopanna and Divij Sharan emerging victorious in the final.
Bopanna has been ousted from the men’s doubles with partner Yuki Bhambri but he is still in medal contention in the mixed doubles with Rutuja Bhosale.
