2019 Cincinnati Masters: Andy Murray lost the first men's singles match after 210 days

In the first men's singles match after the 2019 Australian Open, former world No. 1 Andy Murray took defeat after 2 sets with the same number 4-6 before Richard Gasquet in Cincinnati.

Andy Murray entered the game with a double error and failed to preserve his first serve game. Even if the Scottish player equalized 2-2 after breaking an opponent's game, Gasquet still took the initiative to win the first set.

Murray's serve does not make it difficult for the 33-year-old French player. Gasquet rescues both face break-points to complete the final victory after 1 hour and 36 minutes.

Missing the first 4 months of 2019 to recover from a groin injury, Richard Gasquet is on his way to recover. He will face No. 4 seed Dominic Thiem in the upcoming second round match.

After the defeat, the former US Open champion in 2012 - Andy Murray is ranked 324 in the world also announced that he will not participate in the men's singles event in the final Grand Slam will take place at the end of August, but only contribute face in men's and women's doubles.
