The Swede powered to his first hard-court win since February thanks to a 7-6 4-6 6-1 victory over Murray.

Ymer saved four set points in the opener before claiming the tiebreak and racing to a 3-1 lead in the second set. The Brit was able to mount a turnaround and levelled the match to take it into a deciding set. Nevertheless, the 23-year-old Swede made the most of Murray's physical issues and closed out the third set in emphatic style.

Speaking after the match, Murray told ATP.com: "It was disappointing obviously. I thought there was some good tennis in the first set. After that both of us were struggling a bit physically. The level of the tennis was not great.

"Obviously had chances in the first set to close that out. I had set point in 6-5, then... three in the tiebreak, and didn't get it." He added: "I think he seemed like maybe he was cramping a little bit in the second set, but recovered absolutely fine after the break at the end of the [second] set.

"Went off to change and cool off a little bit, and he recovered well for the third, whereas I didn't really. Yeah, just frustrating. "Actually in Newport I cramped right at the end of one of my matches there. Really hot and humid. Usually I quite enjoy playing in those conditions. "Struggled a little bit the past two tournaments with that. I need to have a little look at that with my team and maybe see why that is, make a few changes."
