Jeevan and Ramkumar could convert only one of the three break chances in the opening set and got none in the second.

The Indians split $1,800 as prize money and earned 55 ranking points each.

Left-handed Jeevan was playing his fourth doubles final of the season at the Challenger level, having won titles in Karshi (with Enrique Lopez-Perez) in May and Nanjing (with Saketh Myneni) in April.

He had ended a finalist at Shenzen with Saketh.

For Ramkumar, whose focus is singles, it was his first doubles final of the season, having played a couple of semifinals.

The next stop for Jeevan is ATP 250 European Open in Antwerp, where he pairs with Belarus' Andrei Vasilevski.
