Bopanna-Moser humbled at Italy Challenger event

New Delhi: The top seed pair of India`s Davis Cupper Rohan Bopanna and Frank Moser made a shock exit from the euro 42,500 ATP Challenger event in Italy following a straight set defeat at the hands of Jamie Murray and Jamie Delgado.

The Indo-German pair lost 1-6 4-6 to the unseeded Britons in the second round of the clay court event.

Bopanna is making a comeback to the competitive tennis after a knee injury, suffered just before the Wimbledon championships.

Bopanna is almost sure of a berth in India`s Davis Cup squad for the World Group away play-off tie against South Africa next month.
