PARIS (AP) — Andy Murray headed out on court with an opportunity to reach the French Open final for the first time.

Rafael Nadal, however, didn't give him a chance.

Murray, who missed the tournament at Roland Garros last year because of a back injury, reached the semifinals for the second time in four years. But for the second time in four years, he was beaten by Nadal in straight sets.

Murray, who lost 6-3, 6-2, 6-1, says "it was a tough day for me. It was a bad, bad day."
