World number four unconcerned after upset

The British tennis number one Andy Murray isn't too disappointed despite losing his first match at the Rome Masters.

The 21-year-old Scot hoped to replace Serbia's Novak Djokovic at number three this week, but after being seeded through to the second round, he's been knocked out in three sets by the Argentine clay court specialist Juan Monaco, who had to pre-qualify for the event.

Murray blamed the changing conditions on the clay courts made heavy by rain which brought about the postponement of his match for a day.
