Murray crashes out of Monte Carlo Tennis Masters
Scot Andy loses epic to Berdych
SCOTS tennis star Andy Murray saw his Monte Carlo Masters challenge end at the quarter-final stage after a long tussle with sixth seed Tomas Berdych.
Murray took the first set on a tie-break, but was unable to build on his lead as his Czech opponent hit back for a 6-7 (4/7) 6-2 6-3 victory after nearly three hours on court.
Murray and Berdych had met just once before on clay in five previous meetings, with the latter securing a convincing win at the 2010 French Open.
