India vs Norway Day 1 Schedule 

Casper Ruud vs Prajnesh Gunneswaran – 9.30 PM IST 

Viktor Durasovic vs Ramkumar Ramanathan – 11.30 PM IST 

In the away fixture for India which will be played on artificial hard courts, India’s Ramkumar Ramanathan will take on Norway’s No.2 Viktor Durasovic, who is ranked 325th in the world in the first singles match of the day. Prajnesh Gunneswaeran will then face Ruud in the second men’s singles tie.

Norway is set to field only Casper Ruud and Viktor Durasovic for both their singles and doubles tie to improve their chances of winning against India as they are entirely dependent on Ruud to deliver. Norway had already lost their earlier tie in March this year as they lost to Kazakhstan 1-3, meanwhile India won against Denmark 4-0.

In the first singles tie for the day, Casper Ruud enters as the overwhelming favourite as he will be facing Prajnesh Gunneswaran ranked 335th in the world. Ruud has been in red hot form this year having finished as runner-up at the French Open and the US Open. Meanwhile Prajnesh enters the contest after facing three defeats in his last four matches in the Challenger. Ruud is playing on a different level altogether and it will be a big achievement if Gunneswaran even manages to win a set against the Norwegian.

In the second men’s singles tie, 274th ranked Ramkumar Ramanathan will face Durasovic, who is ranked 325th in the world. Ramkumar last played at the US Open qualifiers where he lost in the first round. Meanwhile, Durasovic last played at the Seville Chellanger trophy where he reached until the second round. Both the players will be facing each other for the first time and the Indian will have an edge over his opponent.

So Ramkumar’s singles tie will be a crucial game for India as even if they lose both the singles matches against India, they can still win the match against Norway if they manage to win the two other singles against Durosovic and the doubles. So all eyes will be on Ramkumar Ramanathan’s match on Friday from the Indians’ perspective.
