World number one men's tennis champion Andy Murray


World number one men’s tennis player defeated by 129th-ranked Vasek Pospisil of Canada


CALIFORNIA – World number one men’s tennis champion Andy Murray was defeated by Vasek Pospisil of Canada at the BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament in Indian Wells, California, last Saturday.

It was a shocking loss for the British player who had just won at the recent Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.

Pospisil, who is ranked 129th in the ATP standings, cruised to victory over Murray, 6-4, 7-6 (7-5). He was a crowd favorite during his match with Murray.

It was the second time for Murray to suffer defeat the Indian Wells tourney. He was runner-up to Rafael Nadal in the 2009 edition.

“I don’t know exactly why it is, because in practice here normally I play pretty well. And then some years I played well. Some years it just hasn’t quite happened for me. I don’t know exactly why that is,” Murray said. GAC/Expat Media
