Michael Stich doubles comeback ends with defeat

Former Wimbledon champion Michael Stich's return to competitive action 12 years after his retirement lasted only 62 minutes on Tuesday, losing his doubles first round at the German Open.

Stich, 40, joined up with 21-year-old Mischa Zverev but the German duo were beaten 6-4, 6-2 by the Swedish-Australian pair of Simon Aspelin and Paul Hanley, much to the disappointment of the watching 4,000 fans.
