Bopanna-Middelkoop pair loses Hamburg Open final

Rohan Bopanna and his Dutch partner Matwe Middelkoop lost to the British-Finnish pair of Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara in the Hamburg Open final on Sunday.

The fourth-seeded Indo-Dutch duo, who reached the French Open semifinal this year, could not break the unseeded pair of Glasspool and Heliovaara even once and suffered a 2-6, 4-6 defeat in one hour 3 minutes.

This was Bopanna’s fourth tour-level final this year. While the 42-year-old Indian, world number 21 in doubles, won the ATP250 titles in Adelaide and Pune with compatriot Ramkumar Ramanathan, he and Canada’s Denis Shapovalov lost the summit clash in Doha.

The all-Indian pair of Divij Sharan and Purav Raja lost 6-7 (3), 6-3, [7-10] to the top-seeded Mexican-American duo of Hans Hach Verdugo and Hunter Reese in the Indianapolis Challenger Final.

Manish Sureshkumar won the ITF $15k title in Colombo with a fabulous 6-4, 6-0 victory over top-seeded Frenchman Quentin Folliot in the final.

However, in the $15k ITF event in Monastir, second-seeded Vaidehi Chaudhari lost to 3-6, 6-1, 4-6 to the unseeded Indonesian Priska Madelyn Nugroho in the summit clash.
