Tom Jarvis just missed out on a place in the main draw at the Croatia Open, losing a group stage decider 11-9.

Having beaten Mario Banek of the host nation in his first group match, he played Adam Szudi of Hungary, ranked 34 places above him at No 234 in the world, for a place in the knockout rounds.

It went the distance as Jarvis fought back from 2-0 down to lead 3-2, only for Szudi to take the next two 12-10 and 11-9.

In the under-21s, Jarvis was seeded into the knockout stage as 20th seed and he won a close first-round match against Vladislav Ursu of Moldova. However, he ran into eighth seed Deni Kozul in the next round and, in another tight match, went out in a deciding fifth game.

Sam Mabey was eliminated from both the men’s singles and the under-21s in the group stage, as was Kitti Korda in both women’s singles events.
