Close loss Thiemo in doubles qualifiers

Thiemo did not reach the main draw of the doubles tournament in Sacramento on Sunday. Laurynas Grigelis (LTU) and Uladzimir Ignatik (BLR) defeated the Dutchman and his Austrian partner Martin Fischer 7-6(9), 7-6(10) in the first qualifying round. The match was a warm-up for the singles event. “But still this loss is a big bummer, because you want to win every match. Probably we will give it another try in Tiburon next week.”
