Rohan Bopanna could not repeat the brilliant show of qualifying event as he exited from the ATP 250 event in Halle, Germany after suffering a straight-set defeat against Thiemo de Bakker of the Netherlands.

The Indian qualifier fought hard but lost 4-6, 6-7 (11) in the first round of the euro 750,000 grass court event -- Gerry Weber Open.

Bopanna will now try his luck in the doubles event, where he has teamed up with Pakistan's Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi.

The Indo-Pak pair will open its campaign against Philipp Marx of Germany and Igor Zelenay of Slovakia.

Meanwhile, at the euro 713,950 Aegon Championship in London, Somdev Devvarman is trailing 1-6, 2-3 against America's Mardy Fish in the first round of grass court event.
