In the opening match of Group A, Ferrer’s consistency proved too much for the third-seeded Murray, who had treatment for an apparent hip injury between sets.

The seventh-seeded Spaniard broke in the 10th game of the first set and twice came from a break down in the second to stun Murray and the home crowd inside London’s O2 Arena.

Murray finished with 44 unforced errors and made just 46 percent of his first serves.

Later Monday, top-ranked Novak Djokovic was hoping his shoulder injury would hold up in his opening match against Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic.
