Murray suffers early Miami exit
Andy Murray
Murray was broken three times in the final set
British number one Andy Murray lost 7-5 3-6 6-4 to Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka to crash out of the first round of the Nasdaq-100 Open in Miami.

The 18-year-old Scot broke Wawrinka twice in the first set but lost his own serve three times.

After taking the second set, he fought back from 4-1 down in the final set to level the scores but was broken again and the Swiss served out for the match.

And to make matters worse for Murray, he also picked up an ankle injury.

It's just another match, it's not the end of the world

But the Scot played down the defeat afterwards, putting it down as a valuable learning experience.

"It wasn't too disappointing, I've lost worse matches than that," Murray told Five Live.

"I've got to look at the positives that I went a set down and served for the set in the first, and still managed to come back and get the second.

"I went behind in the third set and I kept fighting and got back to 4-4.

"I missed a couple of bad volleys in the 4-4 game but I can't be too disappointed - it's just another match, it's not the end of the world."
