Andy Murray questioned whether to play in Madrid after his Monte-Carlo loss, but he went ahead and did so, eventually losing to Andrea Vavassori in round one. The tennis legend didn’t play a particularly good match, but he did play against a player who is having his greatest year ever this year. Vavassori has been a challenger tour winner for much of this year, and he strolled through the qualifications, winning two sets quite convincingly. The loss is unexpected, yet it may be explained simply by the Italian’s superior form.
