INDIAN WELLS, Calif. -- Donald Young beat fifth-ranked Andy Murray 7-6 (4), 6-3 on Saturday in the second round of the BNP Paribas Open.
Murray, who was playing for the first time in a month, has lost his past seven sets. The slump began with 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 loss to Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open final and continued with a 6-4, 6-1 loss to Marcos Baghdatis in Rotterdam, Holland, in early February.
Against Young, who had to qualify for the tournament, Murray wasted early service breaks in both sets and lost his serve four times. Young, a former junior champion who has struggled on the ATP Tour, began the week with a 1-3 match record and ranked 143rd.
