World number one Andy Murray blew a 4-0 lead in the deciding set on Thursday as he fell to a shock defeat by Albert Ramos-Vinolas in the Monte Carlo Masters.
Murray went on to lose the third round clash 2-6 6-2 7-5, in only his second match back after a month out with an elbow injury.
Two breaks had the Briton in command of the third set, but Spanish 15th seed Ramos-Vinolas hit back to win seven of the last eight games.

He defeated Gilles Muller in straight sets on Wednesday, but admitted afterwards his elbow injury was still causing him some problems.
Murray began his second-round match against Muller with three double faults in the first four points of the match, and his service game was again an issue against Ramos-Vinolas.
