New York: He missed out on a third US Open men's doubles title but Indian tennis star Leander Paes was far from dejected as he insisted that he and his Czech partner Radek Stepanek gave all that they had in the final clash against champions Mike and Bob Bryan.
Fifth seeds Paes and Stepanek lost 6-3 6-4 to the second-seeded Bryan brothers in the summit clash yesterday.
Paes was equally complimentary of both his partner and his opponent. "Even though we got beaten today by one of the greatest teams of all time, my team and Radek's team came out and brought everything they had to this tournament," Paes said.
"I can guarantee you we will be giving it everything we have every single day for the rest of the year," he added.
