Indian tennis player Ramkumar Ramanathan is just one win away from getting his first Grand Slam victory after advancing to the last round of the Wimbledon Qualifiers with a straight-set win over Tomas Martin Etcheverry.

Ramkumar, who slid out of the top 200 due to a lack of consistent results, defeated his Argentine opponent 6-3, 6-4.

In the second round encounter, the Indian Davis Cupper, who is presently rated 211, did not face a single breakpoint and broke Etcheverry, who is ranked 204, twice.
