Antalya: Young Indian tennis star Ramkumar Ramanathan fought gallantly before losing a gruelling three-setter against veteran Marcos Baghdatis in the quarter-final of the ATP 250 Antalya Open here on Thursday.

It was another great show from the Indian tennis player after his shock win over world No. 8 Dominic Thiem. He, though, eventually went down 7-6 (7-0), 3-6, 6-7 (6-8) in match that lasted two hour and 43 minutes.

However, he had 11 double faults along with only 42 percent successful first serve, which possibly was the only difference between the two players.
