However, making a challenger finals in doubles is pretty average even by Indian standards where the Leander has won 8 Mens doubles GS titles (including the US Open) among 54 ATP tour level titles and I'm sure Mahesh and Rohan have also won ATP tour level or higher mens doubles titles in the US.

In singles, I don't recall too many Indians making challenger finals in the US although IIRC Leander (Binghamton) and Somdev (Knoxville) have won challenger titles in the US.

It has happened in the past in an ATP tournament. Vijay Amritraj at M emphasis in 1976. Vijay won quite a few tournaments in the US.
