British number two Cameron Norrie is out of the French Open after losing out in four sets to Frenchman Lucas Pouille.

Cameron Norrie has missed out on a place in the French Open third round after losing in four sets to Lucas Pouille.

The contest did not start until 7.54pm local time on Wednesday, and Pouille held a two-sets-to-one advantage as the two players returned to Philippe Chatrier on Thursday afternoon.

After taking the third set, Norrie possessed some momentum and after doing well to stay with the big hitting of the 15th seed, Norrie created a set point at 4-5 on his opponent's serve.

However, it was saved with an ace and Pouille followed it up with his own break to set up a chance to serve for the match, only for Norrie to strike back to take the set to a tie-break.

Norrie held his own but at 5-3 down, a converted volley at the net was wiped out after the umpire adjudged that the world number 85 had touched the net with his foot, leaving Pouille to take his first match point to register a 6-2 6-4 5-7 7-6 win.
