MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) When Andy Murray tumbled to the court, clutching his right ankle, the top of the men's draw at the Australian Open momentarily took on a new complexion.

Top-ranked Murray, a five-time runner-up at Melbourne Park, was leading his second-round match comfortably Wednesday night when his right shoe caught on the surface in the third game of the third set, and he rolled awkwardly on the ground.

He continued and won that game, talking to himself, saying "It's not good news." He saw a trainer during the next change of ends, but decided he didn't need any extra treatment on his already heavily strapped foot.
