The 37-year-old, who follows a limited schedule to prolong his career, has not played since his earliest exit at the All England Club since 2013.

Playing his fourth tournament after missing nearly a year due to an ongoing hip problem, Murray tallied eight double faults and was broken four times in a rusty display.

Former world number one Serena Williams looked sharp in her return to the hardcourts after a week-long break, soundly defeating Daria Gavrilova 6-1 6-2 on Monday to advance to the second round of the Cincinnati Masters.

"No other reason than personally taking care of my body and trying to keep as healthy as I feel now", Nadal said in a statement. "I expect some ups and downs the next few weeks, months, because I still know that not everything is back", the 33-year-old said. You know, there is only so much you can do before you have to get surgery or something like that.

Murray last played 11 days ago in a Citi Open third-round match, which took him three hours to win and ended at 3am. It's a good thing. "I think I always played her at her best level the matches before, so it was always tough".

Up next for Kvitova is either No.15 seed Elise Mertens or US Open champion Sloane Stephens for a spot in the semifinals.

Some signs of rust were present from a player who had not competed since his surprise defeat to Kevin Anderson at Wimbledon, Federer offering up three break points in a lengthy eighth game.

Eighth seed Dominic Thiem was forced to withdraw without hitting a ball due to illness. He was from a virus.

Kyrgios, a finalist previous year in Cincinnati, overcame physical problems to fight off qualifier Denis Kudla for a 6-7 (2) 7-5 7-6 (9) victory.

Serena Williams waves to the crowd after losing her match against Petra Kvitova at the Western & Southern Open.

"I started, in the beginning, with many more five-setters in finals and then they completely went away".

"It's hard. Every day is a struggle for me just in terms of being regular and letting go and realizing that I'm not going to be a perfectionist at this".

Big-serving Czech Karolina Pliskova fired an ace on match point to dispatch Agnieszka Radwanska 6-3 6-3 in their first-round match.

The win was the first time Querrey has come out on top in a third set tiebreaker this year after losing seven in a row.

Kei Nishikori beat Andrey Rublev 7-5, 6-3, and 13th-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta topped Richard Gasquet 6-3, 2-6, 6-3.
