Yuki-Ryler in QFs of Bangkok Challenger

September 16, 2010 15:33 IST

Yuki Bhambri and his partner Ryler Deheart advanced to the doubles quarter-final of the ATP Challenger event after their second-seed rivals Evgeny Kirillov and Alexandre Kudryavtsev retired mid-way in Bangkok.

The unseeded Indo-American pair was leading 6-2, 6-6 when the Russian players opted out of the first round contest.

A lower back injury to Kudryavtsev forced the Russians to retire.

Yuki and Ryler will next take on Taipei pair of Chu-Huan Yi and Tsung-Hua Yang.

The Indian teenager, a Youth Olympics silver medallist, had crashed out of the singles event after suffering a 5-7, 1-6 defeat against fellow Russian wild card Dmitry Tursunov in the first round.
