Sumit Nagal is an Indian professional tennis player who first came into the spotlight in India in 2019 when he took the first set off the great Roger Federer in the opening round of the US Open. Although he went on to lose the match which was his Grand Slam main draw debut, he had made a more-than-decent first impression. The following year, he had reached the 2nd round of the US Open, becoming the first Indian player, since Somdev Devvarman at the 2013 US Open, to win a match in the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament. After this performance, he had reached a career-high ranking of 122 in the official ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) singles rankings. As of March 2021, he was the 2nd highest-ranked Indian singles tennis player and had become a regular member of India’s national Davis Cup squad.

Sumit Nagal Facts

  1. He had started playing tennis at the age of 8 and 2 years later, he had been selected to join Indian tennis legend Mahesh Bhupathi‘s training academy, as a part of the first batch of Bhupathi’s Apollo Tyres’ ‘Mission 2018’ tennis development program. Under the program, between 2008 and 2010, he had trained in the city of Bangalore. Once the program was shut down, he had moved to Toronto to continue his training.
  2. When he won the 2015 Wimbledon boys’ doubles title, he had become just the 6th Indian player to have won a junior Grand Slam title.
  3. In 2017, he was shrouded in controversy when the All India Tennis Association (AITA) had dropped him from India’s Davis Cup squad due to serious disciplinary issues. This happened after reports emerged that he had missed a practice session in July 2016 during India’s tie against South Korea, citing an elbow injury. This, coupled with a few other misdemeanors, had forced the AITA to take the extreme step.
  4. He was a runner-up at the 2018 Junior Asian Games, held at the Jakabaring Sport City in Palembang, Indonesia, along with his partners Amandeep Singh and Raj Kumar.
