Leander Paes and his Argentine partner Juan Martin del Potro lost in the opening round of the men’s doubles event to bring an early closure to India’s challenge at the ATP Indian Wells Masters.

Paes and Del Potro were no match for Luxembourg’s Gilles Muller and American Sam Querry as they were beaten 3-6 4-6.

A break of serve in each set was enough for Muller and Querry to pocket a comfortable win.

The Indo-Argentine pair, however, had their chances as they had eight opportunities to break their opponents' serve in the second set.

In contrast, Muller and Querry converted one out of the three break point opportunities that came their way in the second set to seal the affair in little over an hour.

With Leander’s loss, India’s campaign came to an end in the tournament as Rohan Bopanna and Pablo Cuevas lost in the opening round.
