Marrakech - Alexander Zverev's poor run of form continued as the world No 3 crashed out of the ATP event in Marrakech with a second-round defeat by unheralded Spaniard Jaume Munar on Thursday.

The top seed fell to a 7-6 (7/1), 2-6, 6-3 loss to the 60th-ranked Munar.

The 21-year-old Zverev, who has won 10 ATP titles but only reached one Grand Slam quarter-final, also suffered early exits at Miami and Indian Wells in recent weeks - to David Ferrer and Jan-Lennard Struff respectively.

Munar will next face Benoit Paire in the quarter-finals in Morocco.
