Mustafa Ghouse loses in semis of Ethias Trophy Challenger

The dream run of doubles specialist Mustafa Ghouse at the Ethias Trophy Challenger in Mons, Belgium ended with a semifinal defeat to an unheralded European duo.

Ghouse and his Australian partner Alun Jones went down fighting 6-7(7),6-2,10-6 to Poland's Tomasz Bednarek and Slovakia's Filip Polasek at the indoor event.

Ghouse, currently ranked 218 in the ATP doubles rankings and fourth in India, had achieved his highest career ranking of 131 in August this year and his performance at the Mons tournament is likely to see him back in the top 200.

Ghouse and Jones had beaten top seeds Yves Allegro of Switzerland and Kristof Vliegen of Belgium in the quarterfinals - by an impressive 6-3, 6-3 scoreline.
