Rosset knocked out in Poland

Marc Rosset throws his racquet away after serving a fault in the Stuttgart tournament earlier this month

Switzerland's Marc Rosset has been knocked out in the second round of the Polish Open in Sopot. The Swiss number three was beaten 6-1, 6-3 by second-seeded Spaniard Albert Portas.

At no time was Rosset able to mount much of a challenge, and in the end it proved an easy victory for Portas, who won his first singles title in Hamburg two months ago.

It's the latest in a series of disastrous results for 31-year-old Rosset, who finished last season as Swiss number one. In 19 tournaments this year, he has never progressed beyond the second round.

His dismal performance on the ATP circuit has seen Rosset plummet from among the world's top 30 players last year to around 100th in the world. And at home he has been overtaken in the national rankings by Roger Federer and Michel Kratochvil.
