Andy Murray eliminated from San Diego Open after beating Casper Rudd

Murray was aiming to reach his second quarterfinal in as many weeks as he continues to recover from hip problems.

Rudd beat Murray 7-5, 6-4 and then paid tribute to his comeback.

“On the other side of the net there was a legend of the game over the past decade, even what he’s been doing now for a year, fighting to recover from a very serious injury has been an inspiration for me, ”Rudd said.

The opening set was watched at 5-5 before Rudd stepped up to take the lead.

Murray then fell behind early in the second set, losing five straight games in a streak that included a streak of seven straight unforced errors.

There was good news for Cameron Norrie, who reached the next round after beating fellow Briton Dan Evans 7-6 (7-3), 6-3.

Murray has been given a wildcard for the Indian Wells main draw, which begins Monday, and he is set to make his first appearance there since 2017.
