Davis Cup: Ramkumar Ramanathan loses second singles in Norway battle

The Indian team is staring at a heavy defeat in its Davis Cup World Group I First Round tie after conceding a 0-2 lead to hosts Norway following Ramkumar Ramanathan’s loss to Viktor Durasovic in the second singles here.

Ramkumar, the No.1 singles player for India, failed to live up to expectations as he suffered a 1-6, 4-6 loss to his lower-ranked opponent Durasovic in one 
hour and 16 minutes on Friday night. After Prajnesh Gunneswaran lost to World No.2 and US Open runner-up Casper Ruud 1-6, 4-6 in an expected result in the first singles, the onus was on Ramkumar to keep India in the tie by winning the second match.
