Liam Broady has dropped out of Queen's in the first round of the competition following a straight-sets defeat to Gilles Muller.

Liam Broady has failed to progress past the first round of Queen's after stumbling to a 6-2 6-1 defeat to Gilles Muller.

The British teenager failed to secure a foothold in the clash in the early stages of the opening set, which allowed his 29-year-old opponent to impose his own game on the contest.

Muller took the first vital break of serve and committed a number of sweeping forehand shots around the court, managing to hold his serve well throughout the encounter.

After the Luxembourg pro took the first set, it didn't take long for him to dominate the second, with Broady unable to find answers to Muller's forceful shots.

Despite managing to get a game on the board, the 18-year-old didn't have enough to force through a challenge.
