Bopanna-Qureshi fail to cross final hurdle at Pilot Pen tourney

August 29, 2010 16:10 IST

Rohan Bopanna's and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi's wait for their first ATP title continued after they lost the final of the Pilot Pen Tennis tournament to Wimbledon finalists Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecau in New Haven, USA.

The unseeded Indo-Pak pair lost 4-6, 5-7 to the Swede-Romanian combination in the summit clash of the $663,750 event.

Bopanna and Qureshi earned 150 ranking points each and shared $19,150 as prize money.

This was for the third time this season that Bopanna and Qureshi failed to cross the final hurdle.

They had also reached the summit clash of the Nice and Casablanca events early this year.

For Bopanna, it was his fourth final defeat of the year, three with Qureshi and one with Krsitof Vliegen at Atlanta.
