Rohan Bopanna and his Pakistani partner Aisam-ul-haq Qureshi did all they could but still failed to get past the determined pair of Vasek Pospisil and Jack Sock in the rain-hit second round clash of the Wimbledon championships, in London on Tuesday.

The contest, spilling over to the second day, became lively after Bopanna and Qureshi won the fourth set to level the scores but ended up losing 7-6(3) 6-7(5) 3-6 6-4 5-7 against the unseeded Canadian-American combine in three hours and 13 minutes.

Now Leander Paes is the only Indian left in the men's doubles event of the grass court Grand Slam. Divij Sharan and Purav Raja had fell in the first round with their respective partners.

For Bopanna and Qureshi it was their second consecutive second-round exit at Grand Slam level. At French Open also they had crashed out at this stage while at Australian Open they made the third round
