Interview - British tennis' Colin Flemming and Ken Skupski

British pair Colin Fleming and Ken Skupski have been knocked out of the men's doubles at the French Open.

They suffered a 7-6 (7-5) 4-6 7-6 (7-4) second-round defeat to the fourth-seeded South African combination of Wesley Moodie and Dick Norman.

Fleming and Skupski did not drop serve in the match but were outgunned in two tie-breaks to lose the match.

There were however wins for Britain's Ashley Hewitt, 18, and Oliver Golding, 16, in the boys singles.

Hewitt bounced back from losing the opening set to beat Austrian eighth seed Dominic Thiem 5-7 6-4 6-3.


Golding, the world's 41st ranked junior, beat France's Mick Lescure 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 to progress to a second-round clash against Brazilian fourth seed Tiago Fernandes.

Fleming and Skupski were the only British representatives to have made it through the first round of the men's doubles.

Jonathan Marray and Jamie Murray were beaten in their opener on Wednesday, while Jamie Delgado and Ross Hutchens lost as halves of separate pairs.
