Pune: Third seeded and Davis Cupper Somdev Devvarman's disappointing run on the ATP Tour continued as he went down to lower ranked Czech Republic's Adam Pavlasek 3-6, 6-7 (3) in the pre-quarterfinals of the KPIT-MSLTA Challenger tennis tournament here on Wednesday.

Devvarman, ranked 143 and on a comeback trail in his bid to get back into top-100, was not his usual aggressive self.

However, Devvarman's Davis Cup team-mate and seventh seed Yuki Bhambri along with unseeded Saketh Myneni kept Indian hopes alive by advancing to the quarter-finals.
