This was his comeback event on the road to recovery from injury and there were encouraging signs that his body is holding up to the rigours of top-level tennis. Of course, Murray has to accept losing to the type of players he was beating regularly during his pomp.
The world No240 – who fought back tears after beating James Duckworth yesterday – underwent hip surgery in Australia last January and played only six tournaments in 2018, the last in September.
