IN the Malibu Wave Classic tennis tournament in California, Norfolk's Richard Bloomfield lost to British qualifier Matthew Hanlin when he was forced to retire with a back injury after losing the first set 6-1.

This also meant that Bloomfield, from Alpington, and partner David Sherwood were forced to withdraw from their doubles match.

Bloomfield was battling for fitness for the Laguna Niguel Futures Championship, with qualifying starting today.

The injury has come at an unfortunate time as he had travelled to California making a major drive to improve his world ranking of 619.
