A heartbroken Andy Murray has paid a touching tribute to his friend Elena Baltacha, the former British tennis number one who died of liver cancer.

Playing in his first match since her death on Sunday, he added Baltacha's nickname of Bally with a heart and a kiss to an autograph as he stepped off the court at the Madrid Masters.

Murray appeared to sign the lens of a courtside camera after his beating Spain's Nicolas Almagro to reach the third round of the tournament.

Baltacha, 30, died peacefully surrounded by friends and family and with her husband Nino Severino at her side.

She was diagnosed with the illness in January, just two months after retiring from tennis and only weeks after she married her long-term coach.
