A tearful Andy Murray advanced to the ATP Washington Open quarterfinals in a three-hour marathon ending at 3 a.m. Friday, then ripped organizers for putting him in such a situation.The 31-year-old Scotsman won his third three-set victory in four days, having been on the court for 8 hours, 11 minutes in all, and he started at midnight thanks to a fourth day of rain delays.Former world No. 1 Murray, now ranked 832, denied Copil on all four break chances in the first set and took a 5-0 tie-breaker lead only to drop the next seven points and squander the set, yelling at himself several times before netting a backhand to end the misery.Murray broke to open and close the second set, then traded breaks in the sixth and seventh games on the way to a final tiebreaker.
