Andy loses in Doha
Andy has lost in the second round of the Qatar Exxon Mobil Open in Doha, losing to Florian Mayer in three sets, 3-6, 6-4, 6-2.
Andy looked almost certain to claim a place in the quarter finals of the tournament, when he led by a set a 3-0 in the second, but his German opponent fought back well and took control of the match to come back to win in three sets.
Andy hoped to put his difficult singles match behind him and push through in the doubles draw. However it proved to be too tall a task, and Andy and his partner Nenad Zimonjic lost to the top seeded Brazilian pair of Peya and Soares in straight sets 6-7 (5), 4-6.
Andy will now continue his preparations for the Australian Open in Melbourne.
