Andy Murray says he was ‘very disappointed’ to lose his match against Fabio Fognini at the Shanghai Masters.

On the face of it, a narrow defeat to Fognini, the world number 13 and genuine contender to make the ATP Finals in London this year, looks a solid run-out for Murray as he battles his way back from surgery.

However, it turned into a heated contest towards the end, and defeat in those circumstances appears to have irked Murray.

Asked if there were any positives he could take from the match, Murray replied: “No, I’m very disappointed.

“There is a lot of things that I need to get better at, and I can do much better.

“I will go away and I’ll work on those things and be in a better position next time I play against him.

“I served for the match twice and lost after three hours, so, I want to say that’s the first time ever in my career that that’s happened.

“I don’t know. But I think it’s the first time I served for a match twice and not won. So I’m disappointed about that.”
