Rastogi in quarters

Davis Cupper Rastogi was staring down the barrel before scrambling his way into the last eight by saving four match points against wild card Myneni, who had surprisingly won the first leg of the event in Chennai last Saturday.

Mumbai-born Rastogi, 25, got past his 24-year-old big-serving rival 4-6, 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (8-6) in their second round clash.

In the lone upset of the  day, Gurgaon-based Karu- nuday Singh ousted seventh seed Rohan Gajjar 7-6 (7-5), 6-3 to reach the last-eight stage. Top seed Yuki Bhambri also saved two match points in the second set to subdue China’s Yu Chang 1-6, 7-5, 7-5.
