Andy Murray was at a loss to explain his patchy form after the Scot suffered a surprise defeat by world No46 Santiago Giraldo at the Madrid Masters.

The 26-year-old, who split with coach Ivan Lendl in March after a two-year partnership, slumped to a 6-3 6-2 loss in the third round in Spain.

Some days just now I’m playing well, and then the next day I’m not playing well

Asked if he was missing the leadership provided by Lendl, Murray replied: “Possibly.

“When I stopped working with Ivan, that was always going to be the case for a few weeks.”

“Some days just now I’m playing well, and then the next day I’m not playing well.

“Sometimes in matches I’m playing really well for periods, and then other times not great at all.”

Murray resumes his French Open preparations in Rome next week and said that he hopes to have a new coach “soon”.
