Andy Murray was aiming to win his first major championship since Antwerp in 2019. Sebastian Korda became the nightmare to his dreams.
After falling to American Sebastian Korda in a three-set quarterfinal round, Andy Murray was eliminated from the Gijon Open.
Former world number one British player Murray, who is presently ranked 48th, won five straight games to seal the second set and force a decider.
However, he was defeated 6-4 1-6 6-1 by world number 47 Korda, who will now play France’s Arthur Rinderknech.
Murray, 35, received a wildcard for the competition, his first since the Laver Cup in September.
After defeating Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in his opener, the British number three came back from a set down to defeat Argentine Pedro Cachin in the second round.
