Tennis: Djokovic crashes out as Murray eases through
PARIS (AFP) - Novak Djokovic crashed out of the Paris Masters in his first match, losing 0-6, 7-6 (7/5), 6-4 to American journeyman Sam Querrey on Wednesday.
Third seed Andy Murray took full advantage of the situation at the last event of the ATP regular season before next week's World Tour Finals, beating Frenchman Paul-Henri Mathieu 7-5, 6-3 to reach the third round.
The Scot was joined by Spanish fourth seed David Ferrer, who defeated compatriot Marcel Granollers 6-1, 6-3 and Argentine seventh seed Juan Martin del Potro, winner of his last two indoor events, who put out Alejandro Falla 6-2, 6-2.
Three men stayed in the race for the two remaining spots at next week's season-ending event.
