Andy Murray was beaten 6-1 1-6 6-4 by Lucas Pouille in the first round of the Cincinnati Open.

The Scot went under the knife in January but has had a frustrating time since he came back to the ATP circuit in June.

The former world number one had hoped to build on the momentum that had carried him into the quarter-finals of the Citi Open before he pulled out of the Washington tournament citing fatigue.

But it was world number 17 Pouille who proved to be the more resourceful as he claimed his first win in five tries against Murray.

Murray pulls out of Wimbledon

Murray pulls out of Wimbledon

Andy Murray withdrew from Wimbledon with a "heavy heart" after saying his right hip was still not ready for the demands of a Grand Slam.

Murray made a comeback last month at Queen's Club following almost a year out with the injury that required surgery in Australia in January.

During a news conference he sounded hopeful about his chances of being ready to face Frenchman Benoit Paire in the first round on Tuesday.

But he announced he was pulling out 24 hours later having consulted his team. It is the first time Murray has missed Wimbledon since 2007 when a wrist injury ruled him out.

Murray in no rush to decide on Wimbledon

Andy Murray will not rush a decision about whether or not to play at Wimbledon after winning his first match for 350 days at the Eastbourne championships on Monday.

The 31-year-old returned last week at Queen's Club after almost a year out with a hip complaint that required surgery in January -- losing to Nick Kyrgios.

After taking a wild card at Eastbourne to test his fitness he enjoyed a 6-1 6-3 victory over fellow three-times Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka in the first round.

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.

Andy Murray has confirmed he will make his return to competitive tennis at the Queen's Club tournament next week after almost a year out injured and faces Nick Kyrgios in his opening match.

The three-time major winner has not played since last year's Wimbledon due to a hip injury and subsequent surgery.

Murray practiced at Queen's on Friday ahead of next week's grass-court Fever-Tree Championships, delayed a decision until Saturday and then told tournament officials he would be there.

Andy Murray to pla the Libéma Open in Rosmalen

Andy Murray will play the Libéma Open in Rosmalen in the Netherlands – in the week before the newly rebranded Fever-Tree Championships at Queen’s.

This is encouraging news, and adds to the impression that Murray – who is understood to have accepted a six-figure guarantee from the Libéma Open – is gathering momentum in his rehabilitation from hip surgery on Jan 8. He has also appeared in numerous videos from Nice, where he is training at the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy.

In one social-media post, Murray could be seem chasing down a ball struck by his 17-year-old Glaswegian protégé Aidan McHugh. In another, he exchanged gentle groundstrokes with a variety of juniors who are training at the Academy. After that session, he was recorded speaking to a cameraperson about his rehab.

“I’m happy to be here training again,” said Murray, whose hip trouble blew up at a time when many tennis champions have been struggling with their health. “I’ve missed playing. I’ve not been fit for a long time. I’m having to go very slowly but I’m happy to be back on the court.”

It still seems likely that Murray will need another couple of months of practice time with coach Jamie Delgado, plus whatever hitting partners he can rustle up, before he returns to the match court. Hip injuries are notoriously difficult to recover from, but as he has previously pointed out, he might not need to regain his very best form to be effective on the tour.

The most obvious target for his first tournament since last year’s Wimbledon would be the Lawn Tennis Association’s new indoor hard-court Challenger, to be held in Loughborough from May 19.

After that, Murray could theoretically participate in the grass-court Challenger in Surbiton, the week before Rosmalen, but that is understood to be less likely at this stage. It is also possible that the Dutch event – which is sometimes known by the unpronounceable name of ’s-Hertogenbosch – could turn out to be his first stop. It starts on June 11 and has a total prize packet of £600,000.

Meanwhile the reigning US Open champion Sloane Stephens came back from dropping the first set against Victoria Azarenka on Thursday to reach the final of the Miami Open. Stephens had won just three matches all season when she arrived in Miami a fortnight ago, but she survived a difficult early match against Monica Niculescu, the slice specialist, and is now assured of a place in the world’s top ten next week.

“Just keep fighting, because you never know what can happen,” said Stephens in her on-court interview after a 3-6, 6-2, 6-1 victory. “I was playing on a back court [on Sunday] against someone who was chopping me up, and to get here onto this court in front of you guys makes it that much more special.”
