Three-time Major champion Andy Murray was beaten in straight sets by top seed Matteo Berrettini in the second round at Queen’s Club.

The world No. 124 fell 6-3, 6-3 to the world No. 9 at the ATP 500 tournament in an hour and 25 minutes.

Five-time Queen’s champion Murray was unable to convert two break points in the Italian’s opening service game, before losing serve to fall 3-2 behind.

Berrettini then broke again to take the opening set, and carried his momentum into the second set to break again.

The 25-year-old saved a break point to hold for 3-0, and closed the match out with more impressive serving.

Murray will make his return to Wimbledon as a wildcard in less than two weeks – having last played singles at the All England Club in 2017.

The Italian fired 14 aces and won a superb 83% of his first serve points, compared to the 61% Murray won.

Berrettini will face another Brit – world No. 25 Dan Evans – in the quarter-finals at Queen’s on Friday.

Evans defeated Adrian Mannariono 6-4, 7-6 (9-7) in the second round.
