Valencia: A title win continued to elude Mahesh Bhupathi and Max Mirnyi as they lost the Valencia
Open final to British brothers Andy and Jamie Murray here.

The third seeded Indo-Belarusian pair lost the summit
clash 6-7 (8), 7-5, 7-10 to the wild card pair.

It`s for the fourth time in the season that Bhupathi and
Mirnyi have lost a title clash.

They ended runners-up at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000
tournaments in Miami, Monte-Carlo and Cincinnati earlier in
the season.

Bhupathi and Mirnyi are trying to grab one of the four
spots available in the season-ending World Tour Finals in
London.

Top eight singles players and pairs compete in the
prestigious tournament.

If Bhupathi qualifies for the London event, he will not
play for India in the Asian Games, starting November 12 in
Guangzhou.
