Andy Murray expressed his frustration following his defeat to Alexander Zverev in the second round of Indian Wells, after taking to Twitter to share an X-rated message.
Murray fell to defeat in the early hours of Wednesday morning after losing in straight sets to the German world number four, and following his exit gave a one-word tweet to sum up his thoughts, which read: “F***.”
The former British and world No 1 headed into the match on the back of an impressive showing in round one, where he defeated Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz 2-1 despite falling behind in the opening set.
Murray – who has endured a difficult recent spell on the court – was no doubt hoping to transform some of his round one form into his second match, however the German star proved all too much for the Scotsman.
Despite Murray finding himself 3-0 up in the opening set a mounted fight back from Zverev saw him take control, as he went on to win five games in a row before taking the opener 6-4.

Another aspect the Brit feels he needs to improve on to make a move back towards his scintillating best is the mindset that helped him reach the pinnacle of the sport throughout the past decade.
He went on to add: “If you’re not quite feeling your shots that well, are not sure how the ball’s going to come out of your racket sometimes, that’s when there’s a little bit of indecision. You change your mind, and that’s when the mistakes can come.
“I guess it’s a case of getting through some of those matches. Just keep building, and hopefully get back to winning tournaments.”
