Former Virginia Cavalier, All-American, and national champion Somdev Devvarman gets better by the day, and recently achieved a career-high ATP ranking of 104, as announced last week and is the top-seeded men's singles player from India. He qualified for the French Open, but will not be playing in the gentlemen's singles for Wimbledon this year.
Devvarman had just missed the automatic berth into the premier tennis tournament in the world, and was third-seeded in the qualifying tournament (the top 16 players make Wimbledon). Devvarman easily took care of Frenchman Guillaume Rufin, 6-2, 6-2 on Monday, but was unable to take down American Ryler Deheart today, falling 6-2, 6-7, 6-3.
Down but not out. Devvarman and former Virginia partner Treat Huey will take on 7th-seeded Yves Allegro and Prakash Amritaj in the doubles draw of the qualifying tournament today as well. You can follow the scores here.
Best of luck, Hoos!
