Somdev Devvarman's Wimbledon campaign did not last long. The Indian and his Philippine partner Treat Conrad Huey went down to the Indo-Pakistani pair of Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi in the first round of the men's doubles on Wednesday.

Somdev, who could not make it to the main draw of the men's singles event, fought tooth and nail in tandem with Huey but the experience of playing together stood Bopanna and Qureshi in good stead as they chalked out a hard-fought 3-6, 7-5, 6-3, 7-6 (8/6) win.

In the second round Bopanna and Qureshi will run into either 13 seeds Mardy Fish and Mark Knowles or the German-Slovak pair of Philipp Marx and Igor Zelenay.
