Andy Murray's Queen's Club comeback was ended in the second round by top seed Matteo Berrettini at the cinch Championships.

Murray, who won his first singles match on grass in three years on Tuesday, was overpowered 6-3 6-3 by the world number nine.

Berrettini, a former US Open semi-finalist, was always going to be a tougher proposition than Murray's first-round opponent, the lacklustre Frenchman Benoit Paire.

The former world number one's movement certainly did not seem to be impaired by his recent groin problem, the latest in a long line of injury setbacks.

But 6ft 4in Italian Berrettini, with one title under his belt already this season, regularly boomed down serves of 140mph and secured a break for 3-2 when the Scot wafted a forehand long.

Murray faced two set points on his own serve and surrendered the second when he dumped a forehand low into the net.

The 34-year-old had a chance to claw back an early break in the second but was unable to take advantage as Berrettini moved 3-0 ahead.

And Murray's bid to reach a seventh Queen's Club quarter-final, and a first since he won the title in 2016, ended when Berrettini ruthlessly held to love.
