The match was delayed by rain for several hours before Murray battled hard to save three set points in the tiebreak before Sandgren converted the fourth to end the 74-minute first set when the Brit's volley found the net.

Elsewhere, Spain's Pablo Andujar beat Nicolas Jarry 6-4 6-2 while there were also first-round wins for Jeremy Chardy, Roberto Carballes Baena, Marco Cecchinato, Bjorn Fratangelo and Alexei Popyrin.

There were some flashes of form from the Briton, who accepted a wildcard to the ATP 250 event, but world number 73 Sandgren proved too strong. I was hitting the ball a bit cleaner than I did maybe in Cincinnati.

But the 28-year-old American broke back and then served out the match to set up a second round clash with Canadian second seed Denis Shapovalov.

"I'm quite aware of sort of where I'm at just now and what my level is", he told the ATP Tour website.

"Some things were a bit better [against Sandgren], I think", he said.

'I thought he got better in his match with Gasquet and for not having played a match in singles since the Australian Open.

Sandgren gutted out a tough service hold in an opening game that went to deuce nine times, saving one break point as they went to the first-set decider without a break of serve.

I'm physically okay considering, no pain, no discomfort. "Just a little bit more exhausted than usual", Murray said.

Andy Murray lost in the first round of the Winston-Salem Open as his return to singles continued following major surgery.

He played well against Sandgren, and could have gone a set up during the tie break, before he squandered a set point, handing the set to the American.

Andy Murray, of Britain, returns a shot against Richard Gasquet, of France, during first-round play at the Western & Southern Open tennis tournament on August 12, 2019, in Mason, Ohio.

"I think for my body it would be a good thing because I do feel at that level I will be winning matches each week", Murray added.

"Maybe I need play a level down to get some matches and build my game up a little bit before I start playing on the Tour again".
