MIAMI (Reuters) - Andy Murray suffered a shock 6-1 7-5 loss to American qualifier Alex Bogomolov in the second round of the Sony Ericsson Open on Friday, continuing his miserable start to the United States hardcourt season.
British world number five Murray, who was ousted by little-known American qualifier Donald Young in the second round at Indian Wells earlier this month, looked badly out of sorts at Key Biscayne.
The Scotsman, who had a bye in the first round, won just 33 percent of second serve points against his 27-year-old opponent.
Moscow-born Bogomolov is ranked 118th in the world.
