Ivanisevic makes unsuccessful return to pro tennis

The former Wimbledon champion Goran Ivanisevic has made an unsuccessful return to professional tennis at an indoor tournament in Zagreb.

The 39-year-old Croatian teamed-up with compatriot Marin Cilic in the doubles but lost in straight sets in the first round.

Ivanisevic won Wimbledon in 2001 and retired in 2004 and says his return to the professional ranks was a one-off to promote the tournament in his home country.
