    Zverev wins 6-4, 7-6

    Andy may not have won, but he gave a top five player a run for his money

    A shame. Getting close hence Andy's frustration walking off court.

    Ah well, Andy can't get the dream upset and tbh even if he'd taken it to a decider it did look like he was running out of steam. But a stellar performance by Andy. First, second round wins are great but it's the matches against the top guys that tell us just how close he is. Sascha's obvious nerves also an indicator of pressure he was put under. Just hope Andy starts coming out the right side of these tight matches with top players soon - he deserves to.

    Exciting volleying exchange it but Zverev takes it 6-4,7-6 (7-4). Good effort from Andy and showed us impressive tennis against a top 5 player and the current Olympic champion, however ultimately he was not able to win enough of the key points. Unfortunately lost the early leads in both sets. Still positives movng forward and Murray's level has definitely improved lately.

    Ok, he lost, and there were a few issues, but there were some absolutely stunning shots at times, proper vintage Andy, and he gave one of the current top players a really tough match.

    Hes probably feeling disappointed, but I am so proud of him right now.

    I heard, last night, he'd lost in straight sets. Then, when I got up, earlier, I read he's going to skip next month's Davis Cup: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/tennis/58894624

    Having a lie in and watching what I missed. He ran the world #4 very close and kept fighting, especially coming back in the 2nd to force the tie-break. Hope he can finish the year going deeper in some of his upcoming tournaments and notch up a few points.
    And as much match practice as possible.

    " 'F**k': Furious Andy Murray's brutal one-word verdict after crashing out at Indian Wells to bitter rival Alexander Zverev - as the Scot concedes 'something needs to change' "

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/sp...ian-Wells.html

    Lol. Andy brutally honest as ever. He knows he deserves the wins against the top guys but isn't getting them. Doesn't matter how much fans look on the bright side after this type of loss, it's Andy who trains like a demon and sacrifices family time, and he's right something does have to change if he is to get the wins he wants and deserves.

    I'm terribly disappointed for Andy, but not disappointed for me. Personally, I think he's come such a long way in recent months, it was always going to be a slow journey back and to get as far as he has (with all the bumps and hiccups on the way) is nothing short of amazing. He's nearly there, I do hope he will make that final push to get where he wants, and I think he will. He doesn't give up easily. The second set last night contained some fantastic tennis and when the disappointment fades, I'm sure he will recognise that. Perhaps all the hard work and sacrifice is about to pay off?

    He definitely has come a huge way in recent months and he is so close.
    It must be so frustrating for him.
    But it feels like he can’t yet progress because he can’t beat these top players he keeps meeting so early on in tournaments and now his ranking has dropped even further!
    What will this mean for him?
