11:45 am on 19 April 2013

The world tennis number two Andy Murray has been sent packing from the Monte Carlo Masters after a string of errors led to his 6-1 6-2 loss to the Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka in the third round.

The fourth seed Tomas Berdych was also beaten at the first big claycourt event of the season, while Rafael Nadal calmly continued his bid for a ninth consecutive crown with a 6-2 6-4 victory over the German Philipp Kohlschreiber, the Spaniard's 44th straight win in Monaco.

The top seed Novak Djokovic, who made a late call to participate after recovering from a sprained ankle, recovered from losing the first set to beat Juan Monaco of Argentina.
