Murray Falls to Lajovic in Straight Sets at Miami Open

Andy Murray, a two-time champion at the Miami Open, suffered a shocking defeat to Dusan Lajovic in the first round. Murray, who had won the tournament in 2009 and 2013, lost to the 76th-ranked Serbian in straight sets, 6-4, 7-5.

The loss came just a week after the 35-year-old Scot was defeated by Jack Draper in the third round at Indian Wells. Despite winning seven deciding sets in an exhausting start to his 2023 season, Murray was unable to produce the response needed after Lajovic broke serve in game seven and went on to clinch the opening set.

Another British player, Kyle Edmund, also suffered a defeat in the first round, losing 7-5 7-5 to Wu Yibing. Currently ranked 52nd in the world, Murray hinted at a potential comeback as he broke back immediately to stay in the second set at 5-5.

However, Lajovic was quick to extinguish any hopes of a comeback, breaking Murray once again and then serving out the match in straight sets, winning when Murray framed a forehand.
