Miami, March 21: India's number one singles player, Prajnesh Gunneswaran, beat Jay Clarke in straight sets to make the main draw of the Miami Open, his second straight Masters appearance.
Prajnesh defeated Great Britain's Clarke 6-4 6-4 in the second qualifying round of the ATP-1000 tennis tournament in Miami to progress to the main draw.
The starting of the second game was no different as the 29-year-old Indian again broke his 20-year-old opponent in the first game. Clarke managed to save two break points but could not prevent Prajnesh from sealing the set and match in his favour.
This is Prajnesh's second straight Masters main draw appearance, coming a week after reaching the third round at Indian Wells.
The Indian will meet Jaume Munar of Spain in the first round main draw on Friday (March 22).
