Andy Murray has bowed out of the European Open in the second round following a narrow defeat to Argentine Diego Schwartzman.
The three-time Grand Slam winner overcame Frances Tiafoe in the first round to set up a tie with Schwartzman and found himself 4-1 up in the first set against the world number 14.
However, Murray would suffer a collapse as Schwartzman took the first set 6-4 before a 7-6 second-set success following an 8-6 tie-break, but the South American nevertheless paid tribute to his opponent's performance.
Speaking to the media after the game, Schwartzman said: "It was a pleasure to play against Andy. We had not played before and he is coming back and every week he is playing better and moving better.
Murray triumphed in the European Open as recently as 2019 but will now begin preparations for the Vienna Open later this month.
