De Bakker And Tursunov Face Defeate In Doubles

Dutch guy Thiemo de Bakker and his Russian doubles partner Dmitry Tursunov did not make it to the second round of the ATP-tournament in Brisbane this tuesday (6-3, 3-6 5/10). The two men went up against number one seeds Max Mirnyi and Daniel Nestor. De Bakker tells us: "We played pretty good. The other two guys have a lot of experience and it showed. I'm happy I played dubs again because it's fun! Also I can improve my volleys and returns which is good."

Earlier this week Thiemo (43) lost his singles match against Istomin (40) (6-7 (5), 4-6.)
