Murray loses again in leadup to Wimbledon

11:27 am on 21 June 2012

Andy Murray has done little to encourage hopes of a home winner at Wimbledon this year.

Just hours after being named fourth seed for Wimbledon, the 25-year-old Scot was beaten by Serbia's Janko Tipsarevic at an exhibition tournament in Buckinghamshire.

The British number one, who has made the Wimbledon semi-finals for the last three years, was beaten by the Frenchman Nicolas Mahut in the opening round of last week's Queens Club tournament in London.
