Andy Murray crashes out in Barcelona
Andy Murray's bid to win his first clay-court title of the year was ended in emphatic style by Canadian Milos Raonic at the Barcelona Open.
The Scot stumbled to a 6-4, 7-6 defeat against the world number 25, dealing a blow to his hopes of making more progress on the surface ahead of next month's French Open.
Murray reached the semi finals at Roland Garros last year, but with Rafael Nadal seldom losing on the surface, the best bet Britain's number one may have of winning his first grand slam this year may come at Wimbledon.
Fans booking Wimbledon 2012 hospitality packages may feel this is Murray's year, particularly if he can retain his Aegon title at Queen's in June.
Murray recently committed himself to playing at Queen's up to and including 2016 and those enjoying hospitality there can also see Andy Roddick in action after his recent announcement that he will be appearing this year.
