DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) Andy Murray was knocked out of the Dubai Championships on Thursday, losing to 18-year-old Borna Coric 6-1, 6-3 in the quarterfinals.

Murray, who reached the Australian Open final at the beginning of the month, had 55 unforced errors and only 15 winners against the Croatian teen. Many of his shots were landing in the net or sailing beyond the lines.

"I would definitely say I was a little bit sluggish at the beginning of the match, but in the second set I definitely started to move a bit better, and play a little bit better," Murray said. "But, yeah, I started the match not good."
