Raipur: Top seed Jeevn Nedunchezhian recorded his 50th singles win of the season on the ITF circuit when he trounced wild card Prateek Pushkar Baxi 6-0, 6-0 while second seed N Sriram Balaji battled past Chandril Sood 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 in the US$ 10,000 Futures tournament.

Prateek, who was playing his maiden match on the ITF pro circuit, had a break point in the very first game but that was the only good time he enjoyed in the contest. Left-handed Jeevan saved that break chance with an ace and never looked back from there, handing the new-entrant a tough lesson in his first outing.
