New Haven: Rohan Bopanna and
Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi 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 here.

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

Bopanna and Qureshi earned 150 ranking points each and
shared USD 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.
