Berdych ends Murray’s win streak to move into the Paris semis.


Andy Murray’s 17-match winning run came to an end in the quarter-finals of the Paris Masters on Friday, as Tomas Berdych came from behind to secure a thrilling win over the world number three. With Murray’s form so imperious going into the match – he had won his last three tournaments and overtaken Roger Federer in the rankings – it was expected he would routinely secure a last-four berth when he won the first set. But Berdych, who now has a 3-1 record over the Scot, dug deep and raised his game to a new level in the next two thrilling sets, often forcing Murray to lose his temper as he won 4-6 7-6 (7/5) 6-4.

Murray engaged in a heated debate with the umpire midway through the final set, his anger no doubt increased by the amount of chances he passed up during the three-hour 12-minute tussle. Speaking after the match, Murray was already looking ahead to the season-ending World Tour Finals in London later this month where the duo could meet again.
