Vietnams No.1 tennis player Do Minh Quan lost 6-3, 6-7, 6-7 to Thai player Wachiramanowong in the second round of the Vietnam Futures F2 tournament in Ho Chi Minh City Wednesday.

Quan missed several chances to beat the young Thai player.

After winning the first set 6-3, Quan continued to play very well in the second and had a chance of a match point when he was leading 5-4 and 40/15. However, the only Vietnamese hopeful at the event let the Thai player level the score and eventually win the set 7-6.

In the decider, Quan had a great start again and led 4-1 for a time, but then lost the set 7-6 and bowed out of the competition.

Vietnams former No.1 player Tran Duc Quynh said Quans efforts were a good example for other young Vietnamese players to follow, but he was not determined enough at important moments. It was partly because Minh has not had many chances to compete at international contests, said Quynh.
