New Delhi:

Harsh Mankad reached the men's doubles finals of the $50,000 ATP Challenger tournament in the United States but it was curtains for Somdev Devvarman, who lost the semi-finals along with Treat Conrad Huey.

Mankad and his American partner Scott Oudsema quelled a late challenge from Benedikt Dorsch of Germany and Australian Marinko Matosevic 6-3 7-6(10) in their semifinal encounter.

However, Somdev's campaign ended along with Huey after the duo suffered a 3-6, 6-2, 6-10 defeat at the hands of top seeded Americans Bobby Reynolds and Rajeev Ram.

Somdev has already made an exit from the singles competition after his second round defeat to Lester Cook.
