Somdev crashes out of US Open

New York: Somdev Devvarman crashed out of the US Open after losing his opening
round in the men`s singles event.

Somdev, who earned a direct entry into a Grand Slam for
the first time, went down fighting against the South Africa`s
Kevin Anderson 3-6, 4-6, 3-6 in his first round in the men`s
singles event.

The defeat means that Somdev has not gone beyond the
first round in Grand Slams this season.

He had failed to qualify for the Australian Open and the
Wimbledon and lost in the first round of the French Open.

A second round appearance at the US Open last year
remains his best performance in the Slams.
