Harsh Mankad's Grand Slam debut ended with a first-round defeat as the Indian and his partner Ilija Bozoljac crashed out of the Wimbledon men's doubles event after losing to Juan Ignacio Chela and Eduardo Schwank.

The unseeded Indo-Serbian pair lost 3-6 4-6 2-6 to the Argentine team, on Wednesday.

Mankad had entered the main draw through qualifiers and had become the latest Indian player to earn a berth in a major tennis event.

The men's doubles event had five Indian players competing with different partners.

The match between Indian Davis Cuppers -- Somdev Devvarman and Rohan Bopanna -- and their partners was cancelled on Tuesday and will be played on Wednesday.
