Rohan Bopanna-Matthew Ebden bow out of Cinch Championships in Quarterfinals

While disappointed with the outcome, Bopanna and Ebden can take heart from their recent success and look to build on their performances in future tournaments.

The dream run of Rohan Bopanna and Matthew Ebden at the Cinch Championships came to an end on Friday, as they fell short in a hard-fought quarterfinal clash against the Russian-American duo of Karen Khachanov and Taylor Fritz.

Resilience not enough

Despite putting up a valiant effort, the top-seeded Indo-Australian tennis pair couldn’t overcome their opponents.

The match went down to the wire in both sets, with Khachanov and Fritz ultimately prevailing in two tie-breakers (7-6 (1), 7-6 (3)).

A key factor in the outcome was the superior serving performance by Khachanov and Fritz. Their powerful second serves proved to be a major weapon, with a win rate of 70%.

In contrast, Rohan Bopanna and Matthew Ebden’s struggles with their second serve execution ultimately cost them crucial points.
