US blues for Moodie

Wesley Moodie’s run of fine form has come to an end at Flushing Meadow, New York when he was ousted from the doubles at the US Open tennis tournament.

Partnered by Dick Norman, the combination went down 6-3 5-7 6-4 to Indian doubles expert Leaner Paes and Czech Lukas Dlouhy in the quarter-finals.

Moodie, part of SASCOC’s OPEX squad for the 2012 Olympics in London, will see more of Paes on home turf next week when South Africa and India clash in the vital Davis Cup World Group play-off at Ellis Park.

With Moodie’s former doubles partner Jeff Coetzee not in the greatest form right now South Africa are going to find the going tough at Ellis Park as the bid for a place in next year’s Davis Cup World Group, a stage they’ve not experienced in 12 years.
