Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi/Jean-Julien Rojer def Treat Huey/Dominic Inglot 4-6, 6-3, 14-12
Britain’s Dominic Inglot (along with his partner Treat Huey) were edged out of a competitive R2 match losing the match tie-break after having six match points.
The British/Filipino pair took the first set as the players traded breaks back and forth initially.
The second set was a much tighter affair, and Qureshi/Rojer got a decisive break to go up 5-3, before taking the next set.
Throughout the match tie-break, Huey and Inglot looked to be in control, edging ahead a mini-break early on and just keeping their noses ahead.
But with three match points on Inglot’s serve, two double-faults brought their opponents right back into contention.
Three more match points went begging as both points went astray for Huey/Inglot, giving Qureshi/Rojer their first, since the start of the match tie-break.
They needed just the one to send the last Brit man in doubles action out of Miami.
