Andy Murray is out of the Gijon Open after being beaten in three sets by Sebastian Korda in the quarter-finals.

Having lost the opener, Murray dominated the second set before seeing Korda do the same to wrap up a 6-4 1-6 6-1 win in two hours and 27 minutes.

The Briton was broken by his American opponent in the third and seventh games of set one to fall 5-2 behind, subsequently breaking back in the eighth but unable to turn things around.

Murray then took the first five games of set two en route to drawing level – only to lose the first five of set three as Korda surged to victory.

Korda will now face Frenchman Arthur Rinderknech, who beat Spain’s second-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta (Spa) 4-6 6-3 7-6 (16).
