India's top-ranked tennis player Prajnesh Gunneswaran will be opening his campaign at the Tata Open Maharashtra in Pune when he takes on German rising star Yannick Maden.

Gunneswaran is coming off a 'lucky loser' tryst at the recently concluded Australian Open 2020 where he made it through to the main draw despite losing in the qualifiers. The Indian got in due to a player withdrawing at the eleventh hour.

Gunneswaran had a chance to meet eventual 8-time Australian Open Champion Novak Djokovic in the second round, but he couldn't get past Japan's Tatsuma Ito in the opening clash in Melbourne.

However, the top Indian seed is back to play in his home country and will have home soil advantage as he begins his campaign against talented German Maden.

The ATP 250 category tournament will see Gunneswaran and Maden meeting each other for the first time since the Furth Challenger in 2016, where the German won the clay-court event.

Gunneswaran is a talented player and a reliable hope for Indian tennis in the future. The former World No. 75 will hope to make a positive start as he faces the German, and level the head-to-head record.
