Federico Delbonis has pulled off the biggest upset of the men’s draw so far at Indian Wells, ousting No.2 seed Andy Murray in a third-set tiebreaker.
The Argentine served for the match in the 12th game of the third set yet failed to close it out before falling behind a mini-break in the ensuing tiereak.
Yet he roared back into contention and brought up three match points shortly thereafter, closing out a 6-4 4-6 7-6(3) win in two hours and 46 minutes.
Delbonis goes on to face in the fourth round the winner of the match between Gael Monfils and Albert Ramos-Vinolas.
It is Murray’s earliest exit from the BNP Paribas Open in four years.
