Rohan Bopanna and Andre Begemann suffered a quarter-final exit from the ATP Citi Open, after a close defeat against Treat Huey and Dominic Inglot in Washington DC.
The unseeded Indo-German pair, which had shocked top seeds, lost 4-6 6-7(1) to the Filipino-Briton combo in the second round of the $1,295,790 hard court tournament.
Somdev Devvarman has already exited from the singles event, and thus the Indian challenge has ended in the tournament.
Bopanna and his new partner paid the price of squandering all four break chances in the second set.
After conceding a one-set lead, they had a good chance to equalise, but the issue was stretched to the tie-breaker in which they were outplayed.
