TENNIS: Murray Suffers Shock Miami Open Early Exit

Andy Murray has suffered a shock early exit at the Miami Open with a 6-7,6-4,6-3 loss to world number 28 Grigor Dimitrov,the same opponent who ousted him in Wimbledon in 2014.

After winning the first set 7-6 on a tie break,Murray was expected to give a better performance in the second set but instead lost 6-4 and looked short of confidence as he was then empowered in the third set loosing 6-3 in a commanding display by Dimitrov.

“I’ve been trying to find different ways to improve my focus on the court,i also did the same thing at the O2 arena as well,so im trying to find different ways to improve and that’s something ive tested to see if that might help.It’s very disappointing because  i had plenty of time to prepare and practice for this.I got myself in a winning position so it couldn’t have been that bad,but couldn’t close it out.There were too many unforced errors that crept in towards the end” said Murray

In other results, world number one, Novak Djokovic defeated world number fourteen Dominic Thiem 6-3,6-4, Milos Raonic defeated Damir Dhzumhur 6-0,6-3 while Krygios edged Andrey Kuznetsov 7-6,6-3 to progress to the quarter finals
