Andy Murray "concerned" by manner of Madrid Masters exit

Djokovic reaches Madrid Open quarterfinals

He lost to Albert Ramos-Vinolas in the third round in Monte Carlo after blowing a 4-0 lead in the deciding set, then was eliminated by Thiem in the semifinals of the Barcelona Open.

Andy Murray's season lurched from the comparatively mediocre to the realms of an alarming slump as he was bundled out of the Mutua Madrid Open by young Croatian Borna Coric. Coric broke Murray's serve three times in the first set, and in the second, he broke at 5-3 to serve out the match.

"The level was definitely very high today I thought from both players", Djokovic said.

Injury has bothered him and form deserted him across the first four and a half months of the year and there was little to smile about as Borna Coric dumped him out in the third round. I'm sure the LTA saw the coverage that was given to the Bouchard-Sharapova match and was given to Maria's run in Stuttgart.

"Whereas today I didn't really do any of that stuff".

"Most things weren't working particularly well", Murray said.

However, a couple of forehand mistakes from Coric allowed Murray to break straight back only for the two-time Madrid victor to then lose his serve once more to fall 3-4 behind.

"Things can turn around quickly in tennis".

Coric was only handed a late reprieve to enter the draw in Madrid after losing in qualifying to Mikhail Kukushkin.

Jose Mourinho confirms Manchester United are giving up on the Premier League
Joao Castelo-Branco and Mark Ogden react to Arsenal's win over Man United, and the state of each club late in the season. Mourinho was rather more theatrical on the subject of his first competitive defeat against Wenger. "I left Highbury.

"Things can change fast, but you need to have the right sort of ideas, correct ideas, understand why you're in the position you're in".

"I didn't help myself find a way into the match to start playing better".

"I played a lot better", said Nadal, who struggled in a three-set win over Fabio Fognini on Wednesday "It was a big step forward". "I have noticed it from the beginning".

Murray had two break points of his own in the next game but he could not take them and he was becoming increasingly irked at how the match was panning out as it reached a crucial stage at 4-3 to Coric.

And he rammed home his advantage by breaking the fragile Murray serve again to close out the set.

Djokovic was dominant on serve throughout, facing only one break point in the opening game of the second set.

German Alexander Zverev also reached the last eight by beating Czech Tomas Berdych and will play Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay, while Coric will play Dominic Thiem, who lost the Barcelona Open final to Nadal last month.

Belgium's David Goffin is also through to the last eight after producing a dominant display against Canada's Milos Raonic to record a 6-4, 6-2 success.
