Wesley Moodie and Dick Norman went out of the quarter-finals of the Pilot Pen Open tennis tournament in New Haven, Connecticut on Thursday.
The South African/Belgian combination were busy preparing for the US Open which starts in Flushing Meadows, New York next week but this time out lost to the Swedish/Romanian combination of Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecau. Moodie and Norman went down 7-6 6-2 after beating United States wildcard combination of Nolan Paige and Marc Powers in the first round.
Moodie, currently ranked 23rd on the world doubles rankings and Norman (20th) had beaten Lindstedt and Tecau in the round of 32 at last weekÔÇÖs Cincinnati Masters.
Tournament top seeds Daniel Nestor (Can) and Nenad Zimonjic (Ser) also lost at the quarter-final stage, going out to Austrian Julian Knowle and Israel’s Andy Ram in three-sets 6-7 7-6 10-4.
Moodie will also be involved in Davis Cup action next month when South Africa take on Germany in a crucial clay-court encounter in Stuttgart.
