Bopanna-Qureshi pair down Somdev-Huey in Wimbledon

London: Somdev Devvarman`s Wimbledon campaign did not last long as the Indian and his Philippine partner Treat Conrad Huey went down to the Indo-Pakistani pair of Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi in the first round of the men`s doubles event here on Wednesday.

Somdev, who could not make it to the main draw of the men`s singles event, fought tooth and nail in tandem with Huey but the experience of playing together stood Bopanna and Qureshi in good stead as they chalked out a hard-fought 3-6 7-5 6-3 7-6 (8/6) win in court number eight.

In the second round Bopanna and Qureshi will run into either 13 seeds Mardy Fish and Mark Knowles or the German-Slovak pair of Philipp Marx and Igor Zelenay.
