India’s top singles player Sumit Nagal on Sunday drew lower-ranking Italian Roberto Marcora, while Praznes Gunsvaran and Ramcoumar Ramanathan won rivals for their clashes in the first round of the French Open.
The 23-year-old Nagal has yet to win a major draw in the Clay Court of the Grand Slam and must start well against the 191st-ranked Marcora.
The Jajar-born Indian, who competed in the Australian Open this year, entered the tournament after playing two Challenger-level events in the quarterfinals.
Left-wing Praznes, ranked 149th, will face German Oscar Otte, ranked 152nd.
Praznes has not competed in the main draw of the Grand Slam since losing his first round of the Australian Open in 2020.
In 2019, he participated in the four specialties on the calendar.
Ramcoumar, who failed to enter the main draw of the Grand Slam in a number of attempts, will open his campaign against the American Michael Mmo, ranked 168th.
Ramkumar’s rankings have dropped significantly as the Chennai player is now placed outside the top 200, at number 215.
In the women’s single Ankita Raina will open her campaign against the Australian Arina Rodionova.
