Taped the game as we had visitors expecting to be able to watch an easy win in comfort (instead of on the edge of my seat) then my daughter text me the score. Can someone please tell me what the hell happened!!!!!!!!

Who knows Tessie.  Andy simply didn't turn up.  Apart from the occasional flashes of brilliance he was playing well below par - hitting the ball poorly and looking lethargic.  Anderson on the other hand played really well. Don't watch it unless you want to make yourself depressed.

Have already deleted it! Just cant face it.  I didnt expect him to win it a comment he made in an interview they showed early today about wanting to peak for the US open made me suspect it was not the plan but go out in the second round surely that wasnt it.

Very wise Tessie.  No point putting yourself through it.  Can't believe this was his intention even if he does want to peak at USO.   So much for the new diet and us all saying how we was looking like a new man.  Unfortunately he looked too much like the Andy of the post AO slump.  Just really hope it was a one off as he can't afford another slump this year.

So do I Ruthie, he is so great to watch when playing well. I was so looking forward to this week have missed the Tennis. Still onwards and upwards lets hope he does better in Cinnci than last year.

Murray's big mistake was in not playing a warm-up tournament, instead faffing around with fitness training in Miami, and the lack of match practice told.  Of course he couldn't know who his R2 opponent was going to be 2 weeks back when he could have played in Washington or LA, but he should have been prepared to play anyone.  He's paid the price for lack of preparation before and has done so again.  He said recently he had become more professional.  ********!

Djoko, Nadal and Fed are in the same position, but they can handle things considerably better, which is why they're the top 3.

Can't wait to read the newspaper reports ... Whistle  I'll continue to support Murray but his disasters are affecting me less and less.  He's just so frustrating.  I'm just grateful that there are other players around who are a constant pleasure to watch.

Finally, well done to Anderson, though, he kept his cool and played a solid match.

Ruthie! my worry is that if this is another slump that now seems a regular fixture in our Andy's tennis year (he never used to have these, so whats changed)?Its a rather dangerous development for Andy, considering its timing. Historically - going back two years we would be in a post slump revival by this time. Somethings very different this time around - Our Andy never really settled during this latest loss and was bereft of direction, i wonder if mentally he was jaded and allowed his nerves and the pressure of the situation get to him? either way its a little unnerving this close to the US open. I hope for his sake he corrects whatever is going on and just turns in a performance worthy of his number 4 ranking when he plays Cinnci next week. Not the best start to his hard court season (maybe 5 weeks without a competitive match was too long)? Good Luck Andy, Hope this is just a little bump and is not synonomous of something more serious............ confused

How can you expect to 'retire' for a month from competitive play and then get a result?.....there are so many excellent players around...you cannot afford to lose your touch!

Why oh why do we keep talking SLUMPS?

A Warm-up ???? No, he is No. 4 in the world FGS...However, I too will continue to support him, but these losses are becoming RIDICULOUSLY frequent!

He hasn't retired any more than the other players have. For god sake get real. OK so we are all expecting Djoko, Nadal, Federer, etc etc etc to go out in their first round match  doh

I don’t like to see so many comparing Andy to other players.  He is not other people.  I suspect he was/is feeling very down due to what is going on in London & you know he does not play his best when things are not right in his world.

He didn’t win today.  That’s all.   It is not the end of the world.  Good luck to Andy & Jamie in the doubles. Hope we get to see some of it.

I hope the weather in Cincinnati will be a lot better than last year.  It looks like it will be other than some rain/storms off & on.  Hope for a good schedule and to not get stuck in the fish soup (which comes under various names) late at night.   C’mon Andy!

Where was the Andy Murray of DC, Queens, Wimbledon? No, this was the AM of Young, Bogomolov and various others? Incompetent, uninterested and not at home! Where was the new red oufit, which was supposed to indicate his new determination?

His first service game really showed the destination of the outcome. He served 2 double faults and missed an easy overhead smash, exactly as he had against Nadal in Wimbledon. This led to his demise in that match, as it did in this one.

How can one continue putting one's trust in a man who does not fight to achieve hie aims in life? I for one as with many others on MW are desolute. Will Andy still be number 4 by this year's end? Forget taking over Federer's number 3 slot.

There's blame on the riots now!?! Dude, no way. Come on. I appreciate that Andy appears to be a much more complex character than the top 3 and seems a pretty emotional guy. But if we're really looking at that then we can find reasons for any loss ever.

Why should the riots in London affect him?  His very upmarket 6 bedroomed Surrey mansion isn't anywhere near the trouble spots.

Our understanding was that the outfit for Montreal and Cincinnati was to be black, and given what we saw earlier, that colour would have been very appropriate.

I have to say that, for probably the first time, I felt very angry after this loss.  Having watched Murray much more closely since joining MW I've come more and more to the conclusion that he is interested in one thing, and one thing only, and that is winning a GS - something he will never have any hope of doing unless he radically changes his attitude, and to do that he needs to cut out the self-delusion that his current set up is fine and find himself a coach, although I think we can forget about the sports psychologist, at least for the moment.
