Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray moved closer to a singles return six months after right hip surgery while Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas rolled into the world's top five Friday at the ATP Washington Open. Britain's Murray and his brother Jamie, in their first doubles event since the 2016 Rio Olympics, lost to New Zealand's Michael Venus and South African Raven Klaasen 6-7 (3/7), 7-6 (8/6), 10-7 in a quarter-final at the US Open tuneup event. Murray has practised singles this week to improve his conditioning after the long layoff.

"I feel fine," Murray said. "Practice has been fine. No issues physically. So progressing well. Just keep practising the next 10 days or so and see what happens."

Top seed Tsitsipas beat French 10th seed Benoit Paire 7-5, 6-0 to reach the semi-finals and ensure he will overtake Germany's Alexander Zverev to crack the world rankings top five on Monday.
