Andy Ram and Max Mirnyi came up just short in their attempt to reach a first Grand Slam final together late Wednesday night, losing 6-4, 6-2 to No. 3 seeds Mahesh Bhupathi and Mark Knowles in the semifinals of the US Open. The Israeli/Belarusian duo, which hadn't progressed past a third round of a major until this week, struggled on their opponents serve throughout the match, winning just 13 of 52 points and reaching a mere two break points, which they failed to convert. Bhupathi and Knowles, on the other hand, converted three of their four break points and advanced to their second Grand Slam final of the year. Ram will now join his Israel teammates in training ahead of next weekend's Davis Cup semifinal against Spain. The Israel squad leaves for Murcia on Sunday and will train on the clay courts of Herzliya in the coming days. "I obviously preferred Nadal would not be on the team," Dudi Sela said on Thursday when asked of the Spain captain's squad selection.
