Kuala Lumpur: Youth Olympics silver medalist Yuki Bhambri has been awarded a wild card entry into next week`s Malaysian Open, an ATP 250 event.

Yuki is coming into the event after back-to-back first round defeats at Challenger events in Bangkok and Astana.

Yuki has been struggling with injuries this season and would look to improve his record on the tour.

A semifinal appearance at an ITF Futures event in May remains his best performance this season.

Yuki will also play in the doubles event of the USD 850,000 hard court event.
