Somdev exit ends Indian challenge

The Indian challenge in the singles competition of the $50,000 ATP Challenger Tour ended on Friday after Russian third seed Evgeny Donskoy outplayed Somdev Devvarman to set up a final clash against a spirited Ilija Bozoljac of Serbia.

Barring the first set which the second seed Somdev won after breaking his opponent in the second game, it was the Russian all the way as he clinched the match 3-6, 7-5, 6-2.
The day, however, belonged to unseeded Bozoljac as the World No 270 made a brilliant comeback after losing nine straight games to stun the top seed and World No 93 Aleksandr Nedovyesov 0-6, 7-5, 6-3.

India found some solace in the doubles which was won by the wild card duo of Saketh Myneni and Sanam Singh who downed Vishnu Vardhan and Divij Sharan 6-3, 3-6, 10-4.
Results: Singles, semifinals: Ilija Bozoljac (Srb) bt Aleksandr Nedovyesov (Kaz) 0-6, 7-5, 6-3; Evgeny Donskoy (Rus) 3-6, 7-5, 6-2.

Doubles, final: Saketh Myneni/ Sanam Singh b Divij Sharan/ Vishnu Vardhan 6-3, 3-6, 10-4.
