Dhamne, who competed in the Australian Open but withdrew in the second round, will be competing in his second Junior Grand Slam of the year.

Manas stated,

“It is a proud moment to represent my country at the Grand Slam. I don’t play much on grass, I don’t practice on grass. A week back I was playing on clay court in Morocco (on ATP Challenger circuit), so I had to adjust my game but I had got used to playing on grass,”

Manas Dhamne, who practises at the Italian Piatti Tennis Centre, dazzled at the Tata Open Maharashtra earlier this year. He had lost 2-6, 4-6 to American Michael Mmoh, but veteran Indian players praised his skill. The world number 47 Australian Hayden Jones will be his first opponent, and he may face top seed and second-ranked Juan Carlos Prado Angelo of Bolivia.
