Chennai, Feb 27, 2013, PTI:

Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan scored a facile 6-0, 6-2 win over Giulio Torroni of Italy on a day when four other Indians entered the quarterfinals of the MCC-SR Subramaniam Memorial ITF Mens Futures at the Mayor Radhakrishnan stadium.

Third seeded Jeevan served strongly and played aggressive tennis to demolish his opponent.
