World No. 2 Murray had a 3-1 lead in the final set before a meltdown that saw him lose five consecutive games to Grigor Dimitrov to drop the match, 7-6(1), 3-6, 3-6. In the process, Murray smashed a few rackets and threw somewhat of a trademark tantrum. 

In his previous round, Murray scoffed at the official when he discovered he’d been playing with the wrong ball, via ESPN.

From the get-go Monday, Murray seemed he’d be in a battle if he were to advance past Dimitrov. The 26th-seeded Bulgarian pushed Murray to the brink in the first set then capitalized on a slew of unforced errors from the 28-year-old in the second. 

Murray fell into a 4-0 hole that he simply couldn’t recover from, setting the stage for a rubber match finale in the third set. 

From there, Murray took a commanding lead and appeared to be gaining momentum before a catastrophic collapse that will keep him from playing for his third title in South Florida, where he trains. 

It also comes on the heels of a third-round exit at the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells. 

Murray has a lot on his plate early in this 2016 campaign, as the Scot became a father just last month. And he did reach the Australian Open final in January. His game isn’t taking much of a hit, as he’s losing with a valiant effort. 

After all, he’s not the only headline name to suffer an upset at the Miami Open.
