Murray moan

Andy Murray has had another disappointing day in the run up to Wimbledon, losing his grip on his Aegon Championships title at Queens after being beaten 6-4, 1-6, 6-7 (7-2) by the fabulously-named Mardy Fish.

It was a topsy-turvy match that was interrupted in the final set by bad light with the third set locked at 3-3 yesterday, a decision that irritated Murray. However, both players held their serves when they resumed play, setting up the tie break that Fish comfortably won. The American will now play Michael Llodra in the quarter-finals, while Murray will have to think about how to pick his form up in time for Wimbledon.

‘It's been tough, yesterday the conditions were difficult, very heavy on the court and blustery,’ said Murray. ‘We got stopped at a tough stage of the match and today I didn't play a good tie-break. I think it's always good that both players have a say in what happens out there but nobody mentioned anything to me and that's why I was disappointed.’
