Slow start

Friday, January 03, 2014

DOHA - Wimbledon champion Andy Murray warned of "bumps along the road" during his comeback from injury and his words proved prophetic as he began the new year with a stunning second-round loss in the Qatar Open.

Murray led by a set and 3-0 and yet lost 3-6 6-4 6-2 to Florian Mayer, the world number 40 from Germany, who seemed more surprised than anyone at how the contest turned around.

"I didn't have high expectations because I have not had many matches. I was playing well and moving well at the beginning."
