Bhupathi’s US Open campaign endsSeptember 5th, 2010 - 9:18 pm ICT by IANS
New York, Sep 5 (IANS) India’s Mahesh Bhupathi’s US Open tennis campaign ended with early losses in the men’s doubles and mixed doubles events.
Bhupathi and his Belarussian doubles partner Max Mirnyi, seeded fourth, lost 4-6, 6-3, 6-7(4) in the second round to Argentine pair Eduardo Schwank and Horacio Zeballos here Saturday.
Bhupathi and Miryi were the 2002 champions at the Flushing Meadows.
In the mixed doubles, Bhupathi and Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia crashed out 4-6, 2-6 to Kaia Kanepi of Estonia and Swede Robert Lindstedt in the first round.
Bhupathi, a two-time mixed doubles champion here, won the trophy with Hantuchova in 2005, and previously with Japanese Ai Sugiyama in 1999.
Rohan Bopanna now remains the only Indian in the men’s doubles. He and Pakistan’s Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi, seeded 16th, play second seeds Daniel Nestor of Canada and Serbia’s Nenad Zimonjic in the third round.
India’s Leander Paes and Czech Lukas Dlouhy, who were also the defending champions, fell in the men’s doubles first round.
Paes, however, is still in contention in the mixed doubles and he and Cara Black of Zimbabwe now play Kanepi and Lindstedt in the second round.
India’s top female tennis star, Sania Mirza, has already bowed out of the singles and the doubles events.
