Andy Murray face à l'Italien Fabio Fognini le 16 mai 2017 à Rome-AFP ANDREAS SOLARO

Andy Murray, le numéro 1 mondial et tenant du titre a été battu d'entrée mardi aux Masters 1000 de Rome par l'italien Fabio Fognini (29e) en deux sets 6-2, 6-4. Et cela, à moins de deux semaines de Roland-Garros (28 mai - 11 juin).

Fognini, qui avait accroché Nadal à Madrid au même stade de la compétition (2e tour), a su profiter de la période difficile traversée par son adversaire.

Murray n'a semble-t-il toujours pas digéré sa fabuleuse fin de saison 2016 qui l'avait vu ravir la place de no 1 à Novak Djokovic.

En 2017, l'Ecossais n'a remporté qu'un seul tournoi, début mars à Dubaï. Murray avait ensuite pris plus d'un mois de repos pour soigner son coude droit douloureux et n'était revenu que pour le Masters de Monte-Carlo en avril.

Sous les yeux du footballeur Francesco Totti, star de l'AS Rome, le Britannique n'était encore une fois que l'ombre de lui-même.

De sonm côté, Djokovic a réussi son entrée. S'il a eu besoin d'aller au bris d'égalité dans la première manche, il n'a pas tremblé dans la seconde. Le Serbe l'a finalement emporté 7-6 (2), 6-2. Le Britannique s'est incliné face à un local du tournoi, Fabio Fognini.

Vainqueur du tournoi de Munich il y a dix jours, quart de finaliste à Madrid il y a quelques jours, Alexander Zverev continue d'engranger de la confiance en se qualifiant tranquillement pour les huitièmes de finale du Masters 1000 de Rome.

Il affrontera un Espagnol, Pablo Carreno-Busta (ATP 21/N.15) ou Roberto Bautista-Agut (ATP 20), au prochain tour.

Kyrgios est remplacé au tableau principal par l'Ukrainien Alexandr Dolgopolov, repêché des qualifications.
