Somdev loses US Challenger final

November 09, 2008 16:43 IST

Somdev Devvarman's giant-killing run ended with a straight-set loss to fourth seeded American Robert Kendrick in the final of the ATP Challenger Series' hard-court tournament in Nashville, US.

The Indian Davis Cupper, who had beaten the second and third seeds in the run-up to the final, lost 3-6, 5-7.

There was further disappointment for India when Ashutosh Singh and Harsh Mankad lost 4-6, 5-7 to the Australian-American pair of Carslen Ball and Travis Rettenmaier in the doubles final.
