Too bad Steve and Somdev can't play doubles together. Hopefully, Steve can qualify with Siljestrom.
As Klahn went down, so did another former collegiate player, Somdev Devvarman of India. Devvarman, who won two N.C.A.A. singles titles at the University of Virginia, lost 7-6 (4), 4-6, 18-16 to Matt Reid of Australia. Devvarman will also miss out on the doubles, as he and his intended partner, two-time N.C.A.A. champion Steve Johnson, missed the rankings cutoff by two places.
Johnson, who received a wild card into singles after winning a Challenger title last week in Nottingham and breaking into the Top 100 for the first time, was able to find another partner at the last minute: Andreas Siljestrom of Sweden, who also would have missed the cut with his original partner. Johnson and Siljestrom played the day’s last match, beating Lewis Burton and Daniel Evans of Britain, 7-6 (7), 4-6, 11-9.
