Gasquet prevails in Murray’s return to singles play

Andy Murray started tentatively but improved as the day progressed as he lost to Frenchman Richard Gasquet on his return to singles play at the Cincinnati Masters. Murray, in his first match since January and hip resurfacing surgery, played well at times but was broken by Gasquet to start both sets in the 6-4 6-4 defeat. He announced later he would not play singles in the U.S. Open, which begins in two weeks. Murray moved gingerly to start Monday’s match, often opting to play the safe shot. The Frenchman controlled play from the first serve, pushing Murray from side to side and front to back as he mixed in drop shots with backhand drives.
