Murray said: "It was a tough first match , I started the match pretty slow, I obviously wasn't serving that well at the start". He needs more matches and the time to rebuild trust in his serve and elbow: the French Open begins just five weeks on Sunday.

"He was in good spirits, he didn't seem to have any problems".

He made his Czech Republic debut in 2012 and secured a place in the national squad for the European Championships later that year, although he had not played for his country since receiving his 14th cap in 2014.

Rajtoral who had 14 worldwide caps for the Czech Republic senior men national team was part of his country's squad to the Euro 2012 championship. I really don't know why he did such a thing, " the club's president explained on Monday, April 24, 2017.

Gaziantepspor manager Bulent Uygun was quoted as saying by Sabah: "We did not expect such a thing at all".

Per Aarons, Plzen released an accompanying statement that read, "Rest in peace Rajt, we will all miss you so much, we will never forget you". "Everybody is shedding tears".
