Playing his first ever Grand Slam in 14 months, the previous British number one, lost           7-5 2 6-4 6-4 in New York. In sweltering conditions, the 31-year-old fought hard yet did not have enough gas in his tank to defeat his Spanish rival.

It was just Murray’s fifth competition back since having hip medical procedure in January.

The Scot looked depleted now and again amid a physical experience on a sticky Arthur Ashe Stadium – prone to be a blend of the conditions as temperatures climbed near 38 Celsius and his absence of five-set matches since being sidelined through hip injury.

In any case, he kept on demonstrating the stubborn assurance that helped him win three Grand Slam titles at the pinnacle of his forces, stretching Verdasco as far as possible before surrendering to a third match point in three hours and 23 minutes.

In spite of thrashing, it was apparently his best execution since coming back to the ATP Tour in June.
