Andy Murray's loss in his quarterfinals match in Paris wasn't just a three-set loss. It was a loss that broke Murray's 17-match unbeaten streak.

The tournament's No. 2 seed was defeated 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-4 by Tomas Berdych, the No. 5 seed in a match that saw only six aces from each side. From The Guardian:

"I was really unhappy with the way I hit my backhand today, which is normally my most solid shot, so that's something I'll look to work on. I didn't feel all that comfortable on my serve this week, even though I didn't get broken the first couple of matches."

It isn't Berdych's first three-set upset of Murray. The last meeting between the two players was during the round of 16s at Roland Garros in 2010. Berdych won that match 6-4, 7-5, 6-3.

The three-hour and 10-minute BNP Parbias Masters match wasn't Murray's last of 2011. He'll head next week to London for the season-ending Barclays ATP World Tour.
