Melbourne, Jan. 26 : British tennis star Andy Murray's dream of lifting the Australian Open has ended. He lost to Spaniard Fernando Verdasco 2-6, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3, 6-4.
According to The Telegraph, Murray struggled throughout his match against Verdasco, making uncharacteristic errors from both flanks.
It was a fantastic result for Verdasco, the No14 seed from Spain, whose powerful forehand and dangerous serve held up under pressure. Verdasco will now face either James Blake or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the last eight.
