Josh Goodall’s hopes of reaching the main draw at the AEGON International are over after losing in three sets to Australian Matthew Ebden.

It looked like the British number four would make a comeback from losing the first set after he won a second-set tie-break and was preparing to serve for the match at 5-4 up in the third.

However, Ebden didn’t roll over and broke the world number 227’s serve to force the third set into a tie-break.

Goodall had his chances to seal a place in the main draw but it was Ebden, the world number 74, who managed to hold his nerve to progress with a 6-3, 6-7, 7-6 victory.
