Andy Murray falls at first French Open hurdle with bruising Stan Wawrinka defeat

Andy Murray was bullied out of the French Open by big-hitting Stan Wawrinka to equal his worst ever Grand Slam defeat.

The former world No 1 lost in straights sets to Canadian teenager Felix Auger-Aliassime in his last match at the US Open.

And back on the clay in Paris for the first time since losing an epic semi-final to Wawrinka in 2017, the Scot was simply blown away by his fellow Grand Slam champion.

The No 16 won 6-1 6-3 6-2 in only one hour and 37 minutes in an embarrassingly one-sided contest. Their 2017 match lasted four hours and 34 minutes.

Murrray went down 6-3 6-2 6-1 to Rafa Nadal in the 2014 semi-finals on the same Philippe-Chatrier

The first three tight games lasted 20 minutes before Wawrinka broke to lead 2-1.

“From a physical perspective, I wouldn’t expect to be the same I was.

“But in terms of ball striking and my strokes and stuff, I don’t see why – there’s no reason that I shouldn’t be able to do that from a technical perspective.

“Zverev was a couple of points from winning the US Open and I’d won against him the weeks before. I’ll keep going. Let’s see what the next few months hold. I reckon I won’t play a match like that between now and the end of the year.”
