Andy Murray was dumped out of the ATP event in Montpellier on Tuesday after suffering a straight-sets defeat in the opening round against Belarusian Egor Gerasimov. The former world number one squandered a set point in the opening set before losing 7-6 (10/8), 6-1 to the 83rd-ranked Gerasimov. Murray, who missed the Australian Open after testing positive for Covid-19, was playing his first ATP Tour event since last October.

Franck Azema will step down as head coach of Clermont at the end of the season, the Top 14 club announced on Monday, in order to take up the same role at Montpellier. Azema, whose contract was due to run until 2023, has been with the club for 11 seasons, first as assistant to Vern Cotter and then, since 2014, as head coach. "While he had two years of contract left, Franck Azema chose to give it up by asking to be released from his commitment at the end of this season," Clermont said in a statement.
