Moodie beaten in Paris
- Updated: November 12, 2010
Wes Moodie has fallen at the quarter-final stage of the BNP Paribas Masters tennis tournament in Paris, France.
The South African and his Belgian partner Dick Norman, unseeded for this tournament, did well to beat the fifth-seeded combination of Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski in the second round, accounting for the Polish pair in two close sets, 7-6 7-6.
But on Thursday they came up against tournament top seeds, the Bryan brothers Bob and Mike. Although they put up a hard fight, they couldn’t take the match into a third set, losing two close sets, 7-6 7-6. Still, they had the consolation of taking home just over 16,000 Euros for making the quarters.
Meanwhile Jeff Coetzee and Polish partner Mateusz Kowalczyk went down in the quarter-finals of the Internazionali Ttennis Val Gardena Sud Tirol Challenger tournament in Ortisei, Italy.
Coetzee has been battling with a knee injury this week but managed to get through the first round draw of the 64,000 Euro competition. But the quarter-finals proved too tough a task as they went down to Austrians Stefan Koubek and Alexander Peyer in straight sets, 6-2 7-5.
