Filipino-American Treat Conrad Huey and British partner Dominic Inglot settled for second in the men’s doubles of the 2013 Power Horse Cup held in Dusseldorf, Germany.
The third-seeded pair of Huey and Inglot absorbed a stunning 5-7, 2-6 defeat at the hands of the unheralded German tandem of Andre Begemann and Martin Emmrich in the finals of the tournament sanctioned by the International Tennis Federation.
Nonetheless, Huey and Inglot pocketed a whopping 11,830 Euros and 150 Association of Tennis Professionals ranking points.
Going into the finals, Huey and Inglot ousted Philipp Marx of Germany and Florin Mergea of Romania in the first round, 5-7, 7-6 (2), 10-2; Daniel Brands of Germany and Igor Susling of The Netherlands in the quarterfinals, 7-6 (4), 6-4; and the No. 1 duo of Colin Fleming and Jonathan Marray of Great Britain in the semifinals, 6-2, 6-7 (2), 10-5.
It was Huey’s second runner-up trophy this year. He connived with Jerzy Janowicz of Poland in placing second in the Indian Wells tournament three months ago.
Last year, Huey and Inglot won a couple of doubles title. They ruled the Nottingham Challenger in Great Britain and Washington Tour in US.
Huey will be seeing action next in the prestigious 2013 Roland Garros in Paris, France.
