MIAMI (AFP) - World No.2 Andy Murray of Britain was upset in the third round of the ATP and WTA Miami Open on Monday, falling to Bulgarian 26th seed Grigor Dimitrov 6-7 (1-7), 6-4, 6-3.

The 28-year-old Scot was seeking a third Miami crown and his fourth final in five years but lost to a foe he had beaten in six of eight prior meetings.

Murray made 55 unforced errors against Dimitrov.

"Grigor is a very good player but I had opportunities," Murray said. "It's not like I came out and played awful stuff the whole time. When you get your chances you have to put your foot down."
