Valencia: Tomas Berdych's hopes of reaching the World Tour Finals in London next month suffered a blow as he was dumped out of the Valencia Open in the first round by Pablo Andujar 6-3, 6-3 on Wednesday.

The world number six arrived in Spain full of confidence having won his second title of the season in Stockholm last week.

However, the Czech looked out of sorts as Andujar dropped only three points on his own serve and broke Berdych twice to close out the opening set.
