Prakash Amritraj crashed out of the ATP Challenger event in Calabasas, US after a tame 2-6 defeat against American Michael Yani in the quarter-finals but Harsh Mankad earned a shot at the doubles title by reaching the summit clash.

The quarterfinal encounter was the first complete match for Prakash, a wild card entrant, in the $50,000 hard court event as his first round opponent had retired mid-way and got a walkover in the pre-quarterfinal round.

Meanwhile, Harsh and his Philippine partner Treat Conard Huey, seeded third, entered the final of the doubles event after thrashing Gustavo Sanchez of Venezuela and American

Craig Schwartz 6-4 6-0 in their last four match.

They will fight it out with Santiago Gonzalez of Mexico and Simon Stadler of Germnay in the title clash.
