Bloomfield reached the semi-final of the grass court event last year but was thrashed 6-4 6-0 by Edouard Roger-Vasselin in the first round this time out.

Currently 332 in the rankings, Bloomfield can expect to drop further down after this loss.

It was a bad day for the Brits in Rhode Island with Alex Bogdanovic also crashing out in the first round.

The former British number two did well to qualify for the event but was defeated 7-6 6-3 by Germany's Tobias Kamke.

America's John Isner is the top seed at the event.
