Paes-Zemonjic crash out of US Open

New York:

India's Leander Paes and his Serbian partner Nenad Zemonjic have been knocked out in the first round of the men's doubles at the US Open. The fifth-seeded pair of Paes and Zemonjic were defeated by the American pair of Jeff Morrison and Amer Delic 7-6 (8/6) 7-6 (7/2) in a tight match. There was little to separate between the two teams but the Americans came up with winners - 29 in all as against 10 from Paes and Zimonjic - when it mattered to emerge winners after an hour and 24 minutes. But Paes-Zemonjic's loss was offset by the progress of Mahesh Bhupathi and Martin Damm who breezed past Gael Monfils and Cyril Saulnier of France 6-1 6-3. (PTI)
