Israel's tennis duo of Andy Ram and Jonathan Erlich came up short in their US Open bid overnight Sunday, losing to Simon Aspelin of Sweden and Julian Knowle of Austria in third round doubles action 7-5, 7-6.
Despite good form the two have been in as of late, culminating in their Masters Series tournament victory in Cincinnati two weeks ago, the Israelis again were unable to advance beyond the third round of a Grand Slam tournament. Aside from Wimbledon 2003, when the two reached the semis, only once did Ram-Erlich make it to the round of 8 at a Grand Slam (2005 US Open).
