At 2-1 in the second set to Seppi, he took a medical time out for something that was wrong with his knee and the break in play seemed to disturb Murray who went 0-40 down on serve and then double faulted at 30-40 to give the game away and Seppi a 3-1 lead and then 4-1 with a hold of serve. Things went from bad to worse for Andy in the set as he was broken again and seemed to be having some issues with his shoulder. Despite pressure from Murray Seppi held his serve to take the set 6-1 in what was an odd set.

The fourth set got off to an even worse start for Murray as he was broken and the called on the trainer and received treatment on his shoulder.
