Paes-Dlouhy pair loses in Dubai C'ship finals

By The Assam Tribune

Dubai, Feb 28 (PTI): Second seeds Leander Paes and his Czech partner Lukas Dlouhy faltered at the final hurdle and went down in straight sets in the men's doubles summit clash to finish runners-up in the Dubai Tennis Championships here.

The Swede-Australian pair of Simon Aspelin and Paul Hanley defeated Dlouhy and Paes 6-2 6-3 in just 57 minutes, much to the disappointment of Dubai's large Indian population.

"(We) didn't play our best tennis today. I felt that we got off to a bad start again. The last three days I've started off really poor. I lost my first service game today, yesterday and the previous day," admitted Paes.

"Today, (we) just lost to a better team. They played solid. They're good doubles players, so they read the game of doubles well. They cover the spots well. Today we didn't get enough balls on court.
