Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul-haq Qureshi had to be content with a runners-up finish at the ATP Sydney International after losing the fiercely fought final, in which there was no break of serve, against Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic, here today.
The second-seeded Indo-Pak pair lost 6-7 (3) 6-7(3) to unseeded but very formidable Canadian-Serbian combination in one hour and 35 minutes.
Bopanna and Qureshi saved all five break chances on their serves but could not convert even one of the seven chances they got in summit clash of the USD 511,825 hard court tournament.
Bopanna and Qureshi split USD 13,100 between them as prize money and earned 150 points each while winners took home a combined prize purse of USD 24920 and 250 points each.
The Indo-Pak Express now head to Australian Open with some good match practice under their belt as they aim to win their first Grand Slam. They had ended finalists at the 2010 US Open.
