Australian legend Pat Cash has crashed out of the 2006 Chennai Open. The winner of the 1987 Wimbledon teamed up with India's Karan Rastogi for a doubles match. But the duo lost in straight sets 2-6, 2-6. Forty-year old Cash teamed up with Indian Karan Rastogi to make his come-back. But they were roundly beaten by the big-serving German duo of Rainer Schuettler and Alexander Waske 6-2, 6-2. Pat Cash's analysis of the match was simple. "He's inexperienced and I'm rusty," he said. For 19-year-old Karan Rastogi, it was a dream come true to pair up with Pat Cash. Rastogi was just 8 months old when Cash lifted the Wimbledon trophy. "When I first met him, I was a bit overwhelmed. But I enjoyed myself on court today," said Rastogi. Pat Cash will now replace the tennis racquet with his other favourite - the guitar. The former champion plays lead guitar and even has his own band which will be performing at the Australian Open this month.
