Andy Murray drops out again in MadridThe third round match at Madrid Open was the first encounter with Brazilian Bellucci and Murray had his serve broken once in the first set and twice in the second, while 36th- ranked Bellucci saved all three breakpoint and sealed victory on his first match point when Murray netted a backhand.

Concerning about his elbow injury, Murray wasn't too worried about his bad form especial his forehand.

"I was coming back from an injury that wasn’t serious but an elbow injury isn’t easy for tennis players."

"I’m happy that physically I progressed, I was hitting the ball decent, I think I can definitely get better."

He will now head to Italy for next week’s Rome Masters.
