World Number One, Andy Murray has exited at the Second round of the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells after losing 6-4 7-6(7-5) to Canadian World number 129, Vasek Pospisil.

The Briton, who were a first round stand bye failed to cope with the brilliance of the Canadian as he was broken four times.

The qualifier beat Kyle Edmund and Dan Evans in the Britain’s Davis cup in February and has added his first win over Andy Murray in five attempts to his glowing experience.

Murray who said he ‘has work to do’ said after he lost at the BNP Paribas Open saying;

“It was obviously a disappointing one as I had opportunities in the first set but I didnt serve well enough”, Murray told BBC Sport.

” I served a few double faults, especially in the first set at important moments, which didn’t help things.”

“He definitely started to play better in the second set, he was being aggressive and coming to the net and played some great reflex volleys at important moments and deserved to win.”

Pospisil will play Serbian Dusan Lajovic in the third round of the singles.
