Moodie falls in Rome

Wesley Moodie, the ninth-ranked player in the world of men’s doubles, and his Belgian partner Dick Norman were beaten in the second round of the ATP Rome Masters on Thursday in three sets.

The fifth-seeded pair fell 6-1 3-6 10-8 after a stirring fightback to the unseeded Spanish combination of Nicolas Almagro and Marcel Granoller, with the imposing Bryan brothers, Bob and Mike, awaiting the winners in the quarter-finals.

Moodie, along with Jeff Coetzee, features in the OPEX 2012 London Olympic squad and has high hopes of making an impact in two years’ time.
