Andy Murray remains positive after early exit from Western & Southern Open

WORLD No.2 Andy Murray insists his early exit in Cincinnati will help fine-tune his game as he prepares to defend his US Open title at Flushing Meadows next week.

The Wimbledon champion crashed out of the Western & Southern Open at the quarter-final stage after losing 6-3 6-4 to Tomas Berdych.

Murray admits he was his own worst enemy after committing too many errors during the warm-up tournament for New York.

The straight sets loss comes a few weeks on from an equally disappointing third-round exit in the Rogers Cup in Montreal after Latvian Ernests Gulbis dished out Murray’s first defeat since May.

However, the 26-year-old has vowed to put the mistakes behind him before Flushing Meadows.

He said: “The court was lively. It was bouncing pretty high. It was quite tough to control the ball. I made too many errors.

“I’ll need to work on my groundstrokes a bit and make sure I’m not making too many mistakes going into the US Open.”

Berdych had came out on top in the pair’s last encounter in May at the Madrid Masters after Murray swept aside the Czech en route to his US Open win last year.

And it seemed the British No.1 was on form after Berdych barely escaped his opening service game before Murray opened his account with four aces.

Murray continued to pressurise his opponent’s serve but Berdych held firm to break in the eighth game after Murray netted a forehand.

The Czech served to love to wrap up the first set before staving off three break points in his next
service game.

It proved to be a crucial hold as he then broke 2008 and 2011 Cincinnati winner Murray in the next game at the second try.

And a composed Berdych held his nerve to set up a clash with Rafael Nadal, who overcame long-term rival Roger Federer in three sets.

The Spaniard rallied from a set down to win 5-7 6-4 6-3 and extend his winning streak on hard courts to 13 victories in 2013.

Nadal, who is within two matches of a record-equalling fifth Masters crown this year, said: “It was very close. He had a good chance in the second. I think I played a few good points in important moments.”

Federer will now drop to world No.7 next week, his lowest ranking in nearly 11 years.

The Swiss star said: “I’m happy with my progress along the way. Could I have won tonight, should I have won tonight, who knows?

“But at the end, I think Rafa’s confidence and the way he’s playing at the moment got him through.

“So for me, I think it was a good step in the right direction.”

Meanwhile, Scottish No.1 Elena Baltacha went down 7-5 7-6 to world No.78 Caroline Garcia of France in the qualifying rounds of the New Haven Open in Connecticut.

Baltacha, using the event to prepare for the US Open, held five set points in the second set but could not take it into a third, losing the tie-break 9-7.

not really a news article but not sure where to post this piece of mini-news.
Was reading Independent books pages on Saturday and a pic of Andy caught my eye.  Apparently an updated version of his autobiography, focused on last two years, is due to be published in November - It will be called Andy Murray: 77.  'Those who care to bet on an Xmas No 1 in the book charts may wish to begin here' the piece comments.

What a shame it's not out until November. It would have made a nice birthday present for me next month. Oh well, I'll have to treat myself to it Smile.

Thanks for the information Ruthie.

Can't believe Andy's playing such a meaningless match early Nov when the ATP calendar is already crowded with Paris and then WTF.  Plus all the hassle of flying to NYC after only recently being in China - absolutely bonkers - is this an April fool or something?

So just before IW.  I don't see anything wrong with it anyway.  It'll be a bit of fun for Andy.

I think he'll see it as a chance to visit one of his favourite cities and get a bit of 'light' match play prior to indian Wells / miami. He'll be on the East coast of US anyway from his miami stiint. Why not - great kudos that they asked him, shows his new status. Think Fed, Rafa and Nole have all done it before.
