Jordan Thompson has delivered an upset at the ATP Aegon Championships in London, by knocking world number one Andy Murray out of the tournament.

Thompson, ranked 90, beat the Scot 7-6 (7-4) 6-2.

The Aussie previously lost in the final round of qualifying on Sunday, but was given a second shot to play following the withdrawal of Britain’s Aljaz Bedene due to an injury.

The match also saw Thompson become the first player since Roger Federer to hold serve for an entire match against Murray.

Thompson said he didn’t expect to come out on top, and was just taking each point at a time.

“Definitely the biggest win of my career,” he said.
