Richard lost against Andy Murray 6-1 4-6 0-6 2-6. His next scheduled tournament is Queens, but there are hints that he might be back only for Eastbourne.
Richard played well against an error-prone Murray to take the first set 6-1. He had breakpoints at 4 all to go up two sets, but could not convert. Unfortunately Murray did the opposite, broke Richard for 5-4 and served out the set.
Pushed on by the gain of the set, Murray got into full flow and stormed over Richard 6-0. Richard did not give up in the forth set and tried very hard, was aggressive throughout, but Murray was on a wave and all efforts were in vain.
