Andy Murray defeated in Washington!

British number one and the top seed in Washington this year lost his second round match to Teymuraz Gabashvili ranked 53 in the world from Russia.

The defeat is a major surprise with the Brit in great form this year with his only loss since February being against a player named either Federer or Djokovic. At a point in the match Murray did lead 6-4 4-6 5-4 and was serving for the match before being broken and going on to lose the match in a tie-breaker 7-4.

Despite defeat Murray was quite upbeat after the match saying:

“It was the first hard-court match for four-and-a-half months with only four or five days of preparation, so I was happy with how I moved and did certain things on court.”

Murray is due to play in Montreal next week at a Masters 1000 event where he is the second seed due to Federer’s withdrawal from the tournament.
