Indian tennis: Prajnesh Gunneswaran reaches new career-best ranking of 80

Continuing his good run, India’s Prajnesh Gunneswaran achieved a career-high ranking 80 in the latest ATP rankings released Monday.

The 29-year-old from Chennai, who broke into the top 100 in February this year, improved two places to become the sixth highest in singles ranking in the history of Indian tennis.
Prajnesh had reached the third round of Indian Wells in his maiden appearance at an ATP Masters event. He had also made it to the third round of an ATP 1000 Tournament for the first time at the BNP Paribas Open early this year.

He had also entered the main draw of the Miami Open to rise to 81 last month.
Another Indian, Ramkumar Ramanathan, dropped 16 spots to slip out of the top 150. He is now in the 157th position.

For an event that celebrates craftsmanship and all its complexities, there was no better way to curate the evening than to have brought masters in the fashion, art, and design world together, inspired by a common catalyst — Chivas 18. In its third edition, Chivas 18 Alchemy captures various interpretations of the sixth sense with the help of these masters or alchemists.
The event featured the alchemist of memory — Rahul Mishra; of intuition — Manish Malhotra; of fantasy — Malaika Arora; of deja vu — Siddharth Kasliwal; and love — Sudarshan Shetty.

The extra-sensorial evening offered immersive experiences courtesy of the five alchemists. Malaika Arora conjured fantasy glimpses through three rooms curated with Ashish Soni. Each room, inspired by Chivas 18, offered a distinct experience — one features the Chivas 18 drop, defeating gravity, floating upwards, another captured its flow, and the third room contained an installation of mirrors and light, creating a scintillating experience.

The alchemist Sudarshan Shetty interpreted love through the backdrop of loss and mortality. His installation used a combination of video, ragas, and a broken chandelier that eloquently expressed the impermanence of love.
