Ajeet was runner up in an ITF G2 event at the Hodmezovasarhely Cup 2017 with partner Georgii Kravchenko (UKR).
After a first round bye, Rai/Kravchenko (seeded 1), had a 6-4 7-5 quarter-final win and then a tight victory in the semi-final, 7-5 5-7 [10-7].
They then took on the No.2 seeded pairing, but went down in a close match 7-6(4) 6-4.
When ITF Junior Points are updated, this should see a rise in Rai's junior world ranking.
Rai went out in the singles in a second round match to the eventual tournament winner.
