Dieudonne Habiyambere's involvement in the first leg of the ITF Men's Futures (Rwanda F1 Futures) came to a premature end after yesterday's doubles' loss.
The country's second seed, who had teamed up with fellow countryman Olivier Nkunda lost 1-6, 6-7 against the Italian pair of David Melchiorre and Francesco Picco at Cercle Sportif.
On Monday, he suffered a 2-6, 3-6 first round defeat against Russia's Alexander Igoshin in the singles category leaving Jean Claude Gasigwa to shoulder Rwanda's faint hopes of reaching the quarter-finals.
Despite losing to Jordi Munoz-Abreu and Jose Anton Martin Salazar in the doubles, Gasigwa stormed the singles second round after a 6-4, 1-6, 6-1 victory over Italy's Francesco Vilardo.
He is now expected to play Francesco Picco, who defeated Zimbabwe's Mark Fynn 6-3, 7-5 in the first round.
In yesterday's other results, the tournament's top seed Gerard Melzer recovered from a set down to beat Netherlands' Jan-Wouter Poep 6-7, 6-2, 6-3 while Egypt's Sabry Sherif cruised to a 6-1, 6-4 win over Hicham Khaddari.
