Andy Murray crashes out of the Paris Masters
Andy Murray crashed out of the Paris Masters today, losing to qualifier Jerzy Janowicz over three sets.
The British number was beaten 5-7, 7-6, 6-2 by his 6ft 8in Polish opponent in what was a tough encounter in which Murray consistently made errors.
Murray served for the set at 5-4 in the second set but Janowicz broke before taking the set to a tie-break in which he prevailed.
Janowicz then raced to a 5-1 lead in the deciding set before winning with his second match point.
Big-serving Janowicz will play either Janko Tipsarevic or Juan Monaco in the next round.
Top seed Novak Djokovic exited in the last round, leaving Murray as the clear favourite to lift his first Paris Masters title, a prize won by both Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski during their careers.
Murray will now turn his attention to the ATP World Tour Finals in London, which begin next week.
