Madrid Masters: Andy Murray crashes out in third-round after straight-sets defeat to Colombia's Santiago Giraldo

World number 46 was rarely trouble in 6-3 6-4 victory

Andy Murray crashed out of the Mutua Madrid Open at the third-round stage on Thursday as he suffered a straight-sets defeat to Colombia's Santiago Giraldo.

Murray produced a disappointing display which saw his opponent, ranked 38 places below him at 46th in the world, rarely troubled en route to a 6-3 6-2 victory and a quarter-final meeting with Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut.

The Wimbledon champion's below-par showing comes as a considerable surprise the day after he had made a decent start to his clay-court season by seeing off Nicolas Almagro, another local favourite, in round two.
