India’s Divij Sharan and his Brazilian partner Marcelo Demoliner made an early exit from the French Open, losing their second round match in straight sets on Friday. Up against eighth seeds Henri Kontinen and John Peers, the unseeded Indo-Brazilian pair lost 3-6 4-6 in exact one hour. Divij and Demoliner could convert none of the two break chances they got besides dropping their serve twice. It is the fourth tournament together for Divij and the Brazilian. Ending runners-up at the BMW Open in Munich has been their best result.
Divij had began the season by teaming up with compatriot Rohan Bopanna but split after losing four first round matches in seven tournaments in a three-month partnership. The Indians had won the season-opening Tata Open Maharashtra in Pune.
