Bernard Tomic Defeated In Record Time By Jarkko Nieminen (PICTURES)

Bernard Tomic suffered the ignominy of the quickest recorded defeat on the ATP Tour at the Sony Openon Thursday, as Jarkko Nieminen beat an 18-year-old record set by Great Britain's Greg Rusedski.

The 6-0 6-1 win lasted just 28 minutes and 20 seconds, with Tomic winning only 13 points in Miami and dropping his serve on five occasions.

That passed the mark of 29 minutes set by Rusedski when he beat German Carsten Arriens 6-0 6-0 at the 1996 Sydney International.

Tomic's presence at the event in Miami was a surprise, coming ahead of the Australian's expected 12-week recovery schedule after hip surgery which followed his withdrawal from his Australian Open first-round match against Rafael Nadal in January.
