The stage is all set at Bulgaria for the Future Series tournament, Babolat Bulgarian International 2017 that start’s today.


The tournament will witness the then 19th ranked Guru Sai Dutt in men’s singles category along with the men’s doubles pair Arun George and Sanyam Shukla after their fantastic run in the recently finished Czech Open.


In the men’s singles category, Guru Sai Dutt RMV will face Leonid Stojanov of the Republic of Macedonia. While, the men’s doubles duo, Arun George and Sanyam Shukla will face Borko Petrovic and Dragoslav Petrovic of Serbia in their respective first rounds at Bulgarian International tournament.


In the mixed doubles category, Sanyam Shukla pairing with Ahilya Harjani will face Jack Macgregor of England and Toni Woods of Scotland.


Gurusai Dutt who has been missing in the action from over a year, is all set to take his first game against the 14 year old Leonid Stojanov.


This tournament is his first since the US Open held in July 2016; after the major ankle surgery that put him on hold to participate in the tournaments. The gap took longer than he expected, as he also underwent the surgery to chop off the extra bone on his ankle and ligament reconstruction which troubled him for a few months.


Guru Sai Dutt, after back-back surgeries in the gap of over 18 months, tested his fitness without expecting to win and lost in the first round at Thailand Open 2017 and didn’t turn up for the tournament for Hellas Open later this year.
