Murray out in third round

Coric, ranked 59th in the world. claimed a convincing 6-3, 6-3 win at La Caja Mágica.

It's the first time that Coric has beaten a World No. 1, but not the first time he has beaten Murray. "And if I do that, I'm sure I can turn it around". "In the end I played as I had dreamed", said Coric.

And one poor service game from the Wimbledon champion cost him dear in the second as Coric served out for the match to set up a quarter-final meeting with Grigor Dimitrov or Dominic Thiem.

Meanwhile, World No. 2 Novak Djokovic progressed through to the quarterfinals after defeating Feliciano Lopez 6-4, 7-5 in a match that lasted for one hour and 33 minutes.

"It's not always the worst thing losing a match, but it's sometimes the manner of how you lose the match is what can be concerning or disappointing".

After some lengthy early exchanges, it was Murray who had the chance to draw blood first but Coric held firm with a fine forehand - which caught the back of the line - and a serve and smash combination to deny the Brit on two break point chances.

Uruguay's Pablo Cuevas recovered from losing the second set 6-0 to beat Benoit Paire and will meet Germany's Alexander Zverev, a 6-4 6-4 victor over Tomas Berdych.

When he failed to convert two break points in the third game he broke out into that manic grin, with Coric having served outstandingly well on the big points.

David Goffin awaits the victor of that clash after the Belgian beat world number six Milos Raonic 64, 62.
