Canadian Vasek Pospisil ended his season on a sour note Tuesday.
Pospisil was ousted from the Paris Masters tournament with a first-round, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 loss to Pablo Andujar of Spain. The loss came just days after Pospisil made it to the semifinals of the Swiss Indoor tourney before falling to Roger Federer.
Ranked 32nd in the world, Pospisil struggled against the lower-ranked Andujar, who got into the tournament as a lucky loser, and committed 62 unforced errors. Pospisil was scheduled to play Gael Monfils but the Frenchman withdrew due to a wrist injury.
"I'm bitter now, but I've had a great year for sure," Pospisil said. "I'll try to forget this match as quickly as possible and look back on a positive year."
Fellow Canadian Milos Raonic, the 10th seed in Paris, will open his tournament Wednesday against Robin Haase of the Netherlands. Raonic still has an outside shot at making the ATP World Tour Finals in London.
