Two-time Grand Slam champion, Andy Murray, suffered one of the most embarrassing losses in his career, after facing a thrashing 0-6, 1-6 defeat from the hands of Switzerland’s Roger Federer.

By the virtue of this humiliating defeat, the Scot crashed out of the ATP World Tour Finals in London, bringing his season to an end by the worst way possible.

“I can say I am disappointed with how I played but, even if I had played well, he probably still would have won. He made very few mistakes and was hitting very cleanly.” Murray was quoted as saying by

“He was loose, he was obviously through and he was able to try some shots. Everything he tried came off. I know I am going to have to put a lot of work in if I want to start the season with an opportunity to win in Australia. I won’t forget about what happened, I want to think about it and use it.

“The one good point is I have six or seven weeks to work on some stuff. I would normally take a break at this point but I need to work on some things, so I’ll try to put in some time on the practice court.”

It was a must-win match for Murray, who had tasted a stunning loss from Japan’s Kei Nishikori in his opening match, before beating Canadian Milos Raonic to keep his hopes alive for the semifinal berth.

However, the Swiss proved why he is the winner of 17 Grand Slam titles.
