Andy Murray did not get the memo that Halloween was over, as the Scot suffered a horrifying final set in the first round of the Rolex Paris Masters. Taking on lucky loser Dominik Koepfer, Murray missed seven match points in a battle that lasted over three hours in total.

Murray had two match points at 5-4 in the third set then five match points in the tiebreak. When asked post-match about the loss, Murray gave no excuses but did note that it was a painful way to exit the event.

"I mean, obviously I'm very disappointed just now. I mean painful," Murray told press. " I mean probably not one of my most painful. You know, it's the first round of a tournament and you know, I didn't deserve to win that match. I didn't play well enough to win.

"I did really well to get myself in the position to win the match, but I don't think I deserved to win, to be honest. I had a ton of opportunities in the end to do it but the way I was playing tonight was not good enough."

Despite the loss, Murray still managed to put on a show, evidenced by this insane rally in the third set.


Murray will end his 2021 season at the Stockholm Open next week.
