Murray stunned by Ljubicic in Beijing
Saturday 09 October 2010
Andy Murray crashed out of the China Open in Beijing yesterday after losing in straight sets to Ivan Ljubicic.
The British No 1 had not dropped a set in reaching the quarter-finals but Ljubicic powered to a 6-3, 6-2 victory in just 67 minutes. Murray was broken in the sixth game, while his opponent did not face a single break point in the set and calmly served out to take it 6-3.
Murray's hopes of a comeback suffered an immediate blow when he lost his serve at the start of the second set. He was then broken again in his next service game and Ljubicic served out to seal the win.
