Andy Murray will have to wait a little bit longer for his 700th career win after crashing out of the Dubai Tennis Championships.
He lost in straight sets 7-5 6-2 to Italian world no.10 Jannik Sinner.
It is the fourth consecutive tournament that Murray has been unable to progress beyond the second round.
He struggled in his opening round win over Christopher O’Connell before suffering another early tournament exit.
And now his woes continue.
As well as in Dubai, the Briton was subject to losses at the Australian Open, Rotterdam Open, and Qatar Open.
