Roger Federrer trashed Andy Murray in 2 sets straight, 6-0 6-1 in his group B match to procede to the semi-finals of the tournament.
The 17 time world champion beat Andy Murray in just 56 minutes in a humiliating fashion.
This was Andy Murray’s worst loss in 7 years since he lost to Novak Djokovic by 6-1 6-0 in Miami. On the other hand, Japanese world number five Kei Nishikori qualified for the semis beating David Ferrer 4-6 6-4 6-1
“Clearly, I’m very happy to play a good match today,” Federer said. “I knew I was qualified so maybe I went in a bit more relaxed.”
“It’s not the way I thought it was going to go, but there’s always next year for Andy and hopefully he can have a good season. At the end I was happy I didn’t win the second to last game to be quite honest.“
Jeremy Bates, former British number one –
“Everyone who watches a lot of matches knows that is as close to perfection as you can possibly get. Everyone is in shock at that scoreline.”
After 24 minutes, Murray’s progress in the tournament was over as he suffered his first 6-0 set loss in four years.
“It was a tough night,” Murray said.
“I’ve lost Grand Slam finals, which have been very tough, but in terms of the way the match went it was not ideal from my side of the court – far from it.
“He played exceptionally well, that’s for sure. I can say I’m disappointed with my level tonight but if I played well, he probably still would have won anyway.”
