Britain's Dominic Inglot fell at the first hurdle after reaching the main draw of the Malaysian Open.

Inglot, who is predominantly a doubles player, had set-up a first-round clash with Alex Bogomolov after coming through the qualifiers in Kuala Lumpur.

However he found the world No 119 too hot to handle as he lost 7-5 6-3 victory in 77 minutes - with Bogomolov failing to take nine of his 12 break point chances.

The Russian is joined in the second round by compatriot Nikolay Davydenko, a 7-5 6-4 winner over Sanam Singh.

There was a mini-upset as sixth-seeded Pablo Andujar suffered a 6-3 6-2 loss to Denis Istomin, while Alejandro Falla was leading 7-6 (7-4) 4-2 when his opponent Rajeev Ram retired hurt.
