Bizarrely, after three games of the match Murray sat down on his bench, took a pair of scissors out of his bag and cut his fringe.
He withstood Nadal pressure until the 10th game of the first set but a run of five games in a row for the Spaniard put him on the way to a 6-4, 6-1 victory.
The result means Murray is likely to need to win his final group match against Stan Wawrinka at the O2 Arena on Friday to progress to the semi-finals, while he still requires one more victory to guarantee that he will finish the year ranked number two.
