Cal coach Ram, Salisbury lose in Cincy doubles quarters

   Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury's winning streak ended at five matches today.
   Alternates Marcelo Arevalo of El Salvador and Fabio Fognini of Italy surprised No. 4 seeds Ram, a volunteer assistant coach at the University of California, Berkeley from Carmel, Ind., and Salisbury of Great Britain 6-4, 7-6 (5) in the quarterfinals of the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.
   Ram, 37, and Salisbury, 29, claimed their first ATP Masters 1000 title together last week in Toronto. They won last year's Australian Open and reached this year's final, losing to Ivan Dodig of Croatia and Filip Polasek of Slovakia.
   Arevalo won Northern California doubles titles in San Francisco in 2018 with Roberto Maytin of Venezuela and in Aptos in 2019 with Miguel Angel Reyes-Varela of Mexico.
