Andy Murray lost to sixth seed Raonic in the Japanese Open, Tokyo, in what was a match full of ups and downs. Canadian Raonic mounted a stiff challenge in the first set, and Murray just couldn’t return on his backhand. This didn’t go down well with the Scot and he smashed his HEAD racquet to pieces. However, he was able to win the 2nd set 7-6 on a tie-break and that gave him a chance, and for a moment everyone thought he’d taken it when he lead 4-1 in the third set but “He needs to pull his finger out when he is serving,” and threw it away, even though he had one match point Raonic fought back to win the match 6-3, 6-7, 7-6. This was Murray’s first defeat since before the US Open.
