Brave England pair lose tennis final
Australians Paul Hanley and Peter Luczak beat England's Ross Hutchins and Ken Skupski to win doubles gold at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi.
After a tight start to the final, the Aussie duo broke serve in game seven and served out the opening set.
The English pairing fought back well, with a fine Skupski return breaking serve as they levelled at one set all.
But after letting a 3-0 lead slip in the decider, Hanley and Luczak wrapped up gold with a 6-4 3-6 6-3 victory.
"Very disappointing not to bring back gold for England but so proud to have played for my country in these historic Games," Hutchins said afterwards on twitter.
Mahest Bhupathi and Leander Paes won an all-Indian clash 6-3 7-6 against Somdev Devvarman and Rohan Bopanna to secure bronze.
Scotland's Colin Fleming and Joss Rae will take on Hanley and Anastasia Rodionova in Sunday's mixed final.
Hutchins will team up with Anna Smith against Skupski and Sarah Borwell in the bronze medal play-off.
There was a major disappointment for the home fans earlier on Saturday as Indian star Sania Mirza lost the women's singles final 6-3 2-6 7-6 (7-3) to Rodionova amid a feverishly patriotic atmosphere at the R.K. Khanna Stadium.
Sally Peers beat fellow Australian Olivia Rogowska 4-6 7-6 (7-2) 6-3 to take bronze.
And there was further bad news for India as Mirza and Rushmi Chakravarthi went down 6-4 6-4 to Peers and Rodionova in the women's doubles semi-finals.
