SHEFFIELD’S Jonny Marray and doubles partner Colin Fleming missed out on a chance at making the last 16 of the Sony Open Masters Series tournament in Miami after losing in three sets against Lukasz Kubot and Janko Tipsarevic on Saturday.

Marray and Fleming had several chances to set up a tie with eighth seeds Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski but couldn’t convert match points in the second set tie break and in the third set ‘super tie-break’. The British pair had won the first set 6-3.

It was Marray’s first event for four weeks since a calf muscle injury forced him to withdraw from the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in February.
