TASHKENT, October 16, 2015
A lot of rain led to a couple of changes of the schedule at the US-$ 125,000 Tashkent ATP Challenger on Friday.
The doubles final was moved indoors, where second seeds Sergey Betov and Mikhail Elgin defeated the tournament’s top favourites Andre Begemann and Artem Sitak, winning 6-4, 6-4 in one hour and one minute. It was the pair’s fourth doubles title on the Challenger Tour this season. Betov and Elgin take away US-$ 7,750 in prize money as well as 125 ATP ranking points.
The singles semi-finals with the four top-seeds in action had to be postponed to Saturday. Yuki Bhambri leads 6-4, 4-3 against Denis Istomin and Lukas Lacko is up 7-6, 2-1 versus Ricardas Berankis.
