Stan Wawrinka speaks to the media after his 7-6(7), 6-3, 7-6(6) defeat against Thomas Fabbiano
Q. After such a good first-round win against Grigor, how disappointing is that?
STAN WAWRINKA: Well, for sure I'm really disappoint to lose a match like yesterday and today. I think I was playing really well yesterday. It was really making the game. During the match, I was a little bit between in my game, not aggressive enough, not moving well enough.

Yeah, I had a lot of set points in the first set. Set points again today. Could change a lot. Unfortunately I lost in three sets.

Stan Wawrinka speaks to the media after his 1-6, 7-6(3), 7-6(5), 6-4 first round win over Grigor Dimitrov

Q 6-1 down, 23 minutes, not very good form going into the tournament. What were you thinking at that moment?
STAN WAWRINKA: Was for sure not the best moment of the match. Was tough. But to lose that 6-1, I still think at that moment that I wasn't playing that bad. I was missing few things. The set went quick. I've been practicing so hard last few weeks on grass to get my level there, to be ready for big match, to know that I can count on my game.

I had to put myself together again, to try to fight, try to find solution. I also knew before the match that it's tough for Grigor to play against me in the first round, especially he's also looking for confidence, he didn't win so many big match recently.

Murray beats Wawrinka to claim first win since return

Andy Murray claimed his first win since returning from a hip injury as he trounced Stan Wawrinka 6-1 6-3 in the first round of the Eastbourne championships.

An unlikely clash on the sun-baked south coast between two wild cards ranked 156th and 225th respectively was not much of a contest but was hugely significant for Murray as he tested his fitness for next week's Wimbledon.

Having lost to Australian Nick Kyrgios in the first round of last week's Queen's Club tournament -- his first match for almost a year -- Murray took a late entry into Eastbourne to put his hip through another examination.

Marin Cilic hopes another good run at Queen's Club will stand him in good stead for Wimbledon.

The top-seeded Cilic was champion in 2012 and runner-up in 2013 and 2017. He came close at Wimbledon last year, losing to Roger Federer after suffering from bad blisters in the final.

He made a winning start at Queen's Club on Monday, beating Fernando Verdasco of Spain 6-3, 6-4.

"You can't live on the glory from last year, you have to show that again," Cilic said. "The grass-court season, it's short but it's sweet as well."

Stan Wawrinka continued to struggle with form and fitness as he was dumped out in the first round by Guillermo Garcia-Lopez on Monday, a defeat which will send his world ranking plummeting.

Wawrinka, who lost to Rafael Nadal in last year's final and won the 2015 title, was beaten in a five-set thriller 6-2, 3-6, 4-6, 7-6 (7/5), 6-3 by the Spanish world number 67 on Court Suzanne Lenglen.

The 33-year-old has been plagued by a knee injury and arrived at Roland Garros having won just one match on clay in Geneva last week, his first event in three months.
