Jeevan and Balaji bow out in Australian Open Round 2

The ‘Alternates’ dream ended at the hands of the seasoned French pair of Jeremy Chardy and Fabrice Martin 4-6 4-6. The team of Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan and Sriram Balaji had miraculously gotten into the Men’s Doubles draw at Melbourne Park yesterday and had caused a huge upset by beating the 5th seeds and French Open finalists Dodig/Krajicek in straight sets.

The pair got a chance to play at Kia Arena, the 4th largest court at Melbourne Park, and will take immense confidence from this experience going into the rest of the season.
