Eastbourne (England): The top seeded pair of
Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul-haq Qureshi made a shock exit from
the ATP Eastbourne event after suffering a straight-set defeat
in the doubles quarterfinals.

Bopanna and Qureshi, winners of last week`s Gerry Weber
Open, lost 5-7 3-6 to the unseeded combination of Grigor
Dimitrov of Bulgaria and Italian Andreas Seppi in the
quarter-finals.

With this defeat, the Indian challenge has ended in the
event, the last warm up tournament before the grass court
Wimbledon championships.

Bopanna and Qureshi could convert just one of the four
break points in the first set and none of the two in the
second set.

Somdev Devvarman and Sania Mirza have already crashed out
of their respective events.

Sania could not make the singles main draw and she and
Elena Vesnina of Russia lost in the first round of women`s
doubles.

Somdev reached second round in singles but lost the men`s
doubles opener along with Mark Knowles.
