Coetzee beaten on clay
- Updated: September 10, 2010
The top seeded combination of our Jeff Coetzee and Britain’s Jamie Murray went down in the first round of the Tean International tennis tournament in Alphen aan den Rijn in the Netherlands, writes Mark Etheridge.
The clay-court tournament, with prize-money of $42,500, forms part of the ATP Challenger Tour.
Coetzee and Murray, brother of world top 10-ranked Andy, went down to the unseeded pair of Australian Rameez Junaid and Greece’s Niko Karagiannis in straight sets, 7-6 (5) 6-4.
“We didn’t play too well,” said Coetzee. “We had so many breakpoints and just could not convert and with big servers, when you have a chance you need to. The hamstring is OK but still not 100%. Now I’m getting ready for Davis Cup in Stuttgart next week.”
