Kolkata: The Indian challenge at the USD 50,000 ATP Challenger Tour ended today after Russian third seed Evgeny Donskoy outplayed Somdev Devvarman to set up a final clash against a spirited Ilija Bozoljac of Serbia.

Barring the first set which the second seed Somdev won after breaking his opponent in the second game, it was the Russian all the way as he clinched the match 3-6 7-5 6-2.

The day, however, belonged to unseeded Bozoljac as the world-ranked 270 showed an astounding comeback after losing nine straight games to stun the top seed and world-ranked 93 Aleksandr Nedovyesov 0-6 7-5 6-3.
