Tennis balls on the stadium court are seen at the Sony Ericsson Open tennis tournament in Key Biscayne Aryan Goevas shocked Evgeny Karlovskiy of Russia in the quarter-finals of the singles event.

Mumbai lad Aryan Goveas could not sustain the winning run in the USD 10,000 ITF Kuwait Futures tournament and lost in straight sets in the semi-finals.

The 18-year-old, who shocked No. 2 seed Evgeny Karlovskiy of Russia in the quarter-finals of the singles event yesterday, did not serve well and went down 4-6 2-6 to German No. 3 seed Daniel Altmaier.

Thanks to his good show in the outdoor hard court tournament held in Meshref, Kuwait, Goveas earned six points and his ranking, currently 1,076, would get a significant boost and is set to dip well under 1,000 to around 925.
