Written by: Staff

Chikmagalur, Karnataka, Apr 19 (UNI) In a major upset two seeded players, fifth seed Pavel Snobel of Czech Republic and Davis Cupper Prakash Amritraj of India, were ousted from the USD 25,000 ATP Challenger Championship here today, even as second seed Danai Udomchoke of Thailand and third seed Yen-Hsun Lu of Taipei stormed into the quarterfinals.

While unseeded American Phillip King defeated Snobel 6-4, 7-6 (7-4) in the match that lasted for 98 minutes, Amritraj knocked out of the Championship by Jan Masik of Czech Republic 7-5, 6-1 in the match that lasted 75 minutes.

Sixth seed Amritraj failed to study the rythm of Masik, despite having suffered a defeat from his hands in the Features Tournament in Abu Dhabi last month. Amritraj did not focus much on the game and committed as many as five double faults paving the way for his opponent to win the match and enter the last eight stage.

In the Doubles pre-quarter, Indian pair Karan Rastogi and Ashutosh Singh were defeated by Jesse Huta Galung of the Netherlands and Laurent Recouderc of France 6-4, 2-6, 10-4.
