Yuki Bhambri failed to capitalise on a bright start and crashed out of the Wimbledon championships, falling prey to nemesis Thomas Fabbiano, in London on Monday.

The 85-ranked Indian lost his first round match 6-2, 3-6, 3-6, 2-6 in two hour and 38 minutes.

 

Yuki has now lost all his four matches against the 133-ranked Italian.

Yuki was the lone Indian competing in the singles but as many as six of his compatriots will compete in the men's doubles later this week. 

The 25-year-old has featured in the men's singles main draw of all three Grand Slams of the season so far but is yet to win a match.

He had qualified for the Australian Open and earned direct entry into French Open and Wimbledon, courtesy his top-100 rank.
