Murray falters to Mayer defeat

Published: 02/01/2014

Andy Murray’s ATP Tour comeback ended with defeat by Florian Mayer in the second round of the Qatar ExxonMobil Open yesterday.

The Wimbledon champion looked to be easing through when he led by a set and 3-0 but German Mayer won 11 of the last 14 games to triumph 3-6, 6-4, 6-2.

Murray is not scheduled to play another tournament before the Australian Open and the early exit in Doha leaves him short of competitive matches ahead of the year’s first grand slam.
