Hewitt falls at first hurdle

LLEYTON Hewitt didn't enjoy a fairytale comeback from injury in the first round of the French Open.

The 31-year-old Hewitt, who was playing his first competitive match since having surgery on the big toe of his left foot in February, lost 7-6 (7-2) 6-3 6-7 (4-7) 6-3 against Slovenian qualifier Blaz Kavcic.

The former world No.1 made 63 unforced errors and hit eight double faults.

Gold Coast teenager Bernard Tomic was the only Australian to win on the second day at Roland Garros, overcoming Andreas Haider-Maurer 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 6-3 to claim his first ever win in the tournament.

Tomic, the 25th seed, will now play Columbia's Santiago Giraldo, who Tomic beat on clay earlier this month.

Matthew Ebden, the third Australian in action on day two, was knocked out by 24th seed Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany 6-4 6-4 7-6 (7-4).
