Slow starter: Andy Murray off the pace before fightback at the Shanghai Masters

ANDY MURRAY admitted he had struggled with the pace of the court early on after he continued his comeback from hip surgery with a first-round victory over Juan Ignacio Londero at the Shanghai Masters.

Murray recovered from a poor first set to beat the Argentinian qualifier 2-6, 6-2, 6-3.

The Scot will play Italy’s Fabio Fognini in round two and said: ‘The court is by far the fastest conditions I have played in since I came back.

‘I really struggled with that early on. I was mistiming the ball. I felt quite slow on court.’

■ 6 — Consecutive defeats for Kyle Edmund, who will lose his status as British No.1 to Dan Evans or Cameron Norrie after his loss to Jeremy Chardy in Shanghai
