World No 1 ANDY MURRAY was sent crashing out of the Australian Open by German Mischa Zverev in a huge shock in Melbourne.

It was a frustrating day at the office for Andy Murray as he was dumped out of the Australian Open

Murray went down 5-7, 7-5, 2-6, 4-6 as he looked distinctly out of sorts against his 29-year-old German opponent.


In a bad day at the office for Murray, his aim appeared wildly off-centre in a disappointing third set when they were tied 1-1.

This followed on into the fifth set, with Murray out-thought, and out-battled by the underdog.

Clearly distraught after his defeat, Murray didn’t hang around after Zverev sealed the famous victory, and made a quick exit off the court.

Speaking after his superb victory court-side to Jim Courier, Zverev said: “I got excited, the crowd is here, how can you not stay focussed.

“It was easy to stay aggressive, but tough to stay calm. But somehow I made it.

“It means the world to me, my whole family is here, and it’s just amazing.”
