Eastbourne: The top seeded pair of Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul-haq Qureshi made a shock exit from the ATP Eastbourne event after suffering a straight-set defeat in the doubles quarter-finals.

Bopanna and Qureshi, winners of last week's Gerry Weber Open, lost 5-7, 3-6 to the unseeded combination of Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria and Italian Andreas Seppi in the quarter-finals.
 
With this defeat, the Indian challenge has ended in the event, the last warm up tournament before the grass court Wimbledon championships.

Bopanna and Qureshi could convert just one of the four break points in the first set and none of the two in the second set.

Somdev Devvarman and Sania Mirza have already crashed out of their respective events.

Sania could not make the singles main draw, and she along with her Russian partner Elena Vesnina lost in the first round of women's doubles.

Somdev reached second round in singles but lost the men's doubles opener along with Mark Knowles.
