India's latest tennis sensation Somdev Devvarman lost to Croatian Marin Cilic in the final of the Chennai Open tournament on Sunday.

Devvarman who had reached the final after getting a walkover in the semi-final due to his opponent having received a wrist injury, lost in straight sets. Cilic won 6-4, 7-6.

Devvarman had raised the hopes of Indian tennis fans after he had a sensational start in the championship. Enroute to the final he had beaten Carlos Moya and Ivo Karlovic.
