Third seeds Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul Haq Qureshi clinched a hard-fought doubles title at the US $25,000 ATP Challenger in Manchester, England.

The Indo-Pak team defeated Jesse Huta Galung of the Netherlands and Michael Ryderstedt of Sweden 4-6, 6-3, 10-5 in the final of the grass court event on Sunday.

This is Bopanna's second doubles title in the Challenger Series this year, the previous being at Dublin, Ireland, with Adam Feeney earlier this month.

For Qureshi, it is his maiden Challenger title.

Bopanna's singles run was cut short after the seventh seeded Indian was shocked by Harel Levy of Isreal in the semi-finals while Qureshi, who was seeded second, lost to 27-year-old Bopanna in the quarter-finals.
