London - World No 4 Andy Murray suffered a fresh blow to his Wimbledon preparations on Wednesday as the Scot was beaten by Janko Tipsarevic at an exhibition tournament.

Just hours after being named as the fourth seed in the men's draw at Wimbledon, Murray slumped to his second successive defeat on grass, losing 6-7 (5/7), 6-4, 10-7 (super tie-break) against Serbia's Tipsarevic in The Boodles event at Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire.

The 25-year-old British No 1 , who has reached the semi-finals at Wimbledon for the last three years, crashed out of the All England Club warm-up event at Queen's last week after losing to Nicolas Mahut in his first match.

Murray, still looking to win his first Grand Slam title, is Britain's only serious contender for the Wimbledon men's title, which hasn't been won by a home player since Fred Perry lifted the trophy in 1936.
