Ruben (ATP-139) has failed to advance to the main draw of the Miami Open. He lost to the American Tim Smyczek (ATP-166) in two sets.
After a nice win in the first qualifying round Ruben had to face homeplayer Smyczek. Our compatriot defeated the American in Charlottesville last year, but this time Smyczek was too strong. Ruben lost after 1 hour and 9 minutes with 7-5 and 6-1.
