Andy Murray’s woes continued on Friday as the world number one fell to another straight-sets defeat to Borna Coric at the Madrid Open.
The Croatian claimed his scalp in February at the Dubai Championships, winning 6-1 6-3 as Murray made 55 unforced errors and failed to even earn a single break point.
This match was almost as embarrassingly one-sided at 6-3 6-3, and it is another loss which will hurt Murray, who now heads to Rome where he is defending champion.

Murray‘s form is stark contrast to at this point last year when, then the perennial number two in the rankings behind Novak Djokovic, he embarked on a phenomenal seven-month run to propel himself to the top of the rankings pile.
