Greg Rusedski's Wimbledon preparations suffered a massive setback when he crashed out in the first round of the Stella Artois Championship on Tuesday. Rusedski breezed through the first set against Korean qualifier Hyung-Taik Lee, and looked on course for a morale-boosting win.

The British number two went down 6-3 3-6 6-4 to the man he beat at Surbiton last week.

Rusedski looked fit and eager and began in determined fashion, winning the first set quickly with one break. But Lee held his nerve and gradually became accustomed to Rusedski's serve and lifted his game sufficiently. Lee struggled to cope with Rusedki's power and variety of service in the first set but once he adjusted he proved the better player.

He broke Rusedski in the fourth game of the second set and held his own serve before closing out the set. In the third, Rusedski romped to 3-0 up but let his opponent back in and became visibly frustrated as Lee ground his way back for the victory.
