Britains no. 1 tennis player has just been knocked out of the first round of the Cincinnati Masters by Marcos Baghdatis.
Andy Murray was beaten in straight sets 6-1, 6-2 in just 59 minutes by the Cypriot, who reached the Australian Open final and Wimbledon semi-final last year.
Murray seemed to struggle through the whole match. But it was a horrible match to watch, as he just didn’t really seem bothered about whether he won or lost. We all know he had a hard draw infront of him, but he didn’t chase a couple of points that he could easily have won (or at least tried to) and his serving wasn’t up to scratch; both of which you wouldn’t expect from Murray who has only recently slipped from within the top ten in the ATP rankings.
It was obvious throughout the entire match that Murray’s forehand was not at full power, which is understandable considering he is still on the mend from his wrist injury. But I want to see the Murray with the fire in his belly who wants to win.
That is the Murray everyone likes to watch, not this sad sack we have just now!
Baghdatis will face Juan Ignacio Chela in the second round and if he wins will most likely go on to face Roger Federer.
