Murray can't halt Djokovic's winning run in Beijing

04 October 2014 / 12:36

Andy Murray was left wondering what could have been after missing out on a spot in the China Open final after defeat to Novak Djokovic.

World number one and defending champion Djokovic took the court looking to continue a winning streak in Beijing that has seen him rack up 22 consecutive victories.

And that impressive run is now at 23 games after Murray was downed 6-3 6-4, the Scot having begun the week in tenth in the race to London standings, with the top eight qualifying for November’s season-ending ATP World Tour Finals.

Murray, 27, will still harbour hopes he can make it to the capital next month but he admits he will have to cut out the errors in order to do so.

"I was doing a decent job of it myself, but I just made a few too many errors," said Murray.

"I played some good stuff. But the period the middle of the first set, and the beginning of the second set, I could have done better."
