Murray cruises through in Miami

Murray cruises through


The fourth seed stamped his authority on the encounter from the outset, and assumed complete control of the opening set with two comprehensive breaks of serve.

Murray took the set 6-2 with consummate ease, with the British number one finding a good rhythm on serve and from the back of the court.

Falla clawed his way back into the match in a hard-fought second set, but the Colombian could not prevent Murray eventually taking control once more.

The Scot slammed a flurry of fine groundstrokes to break once more, and the world number four took the second set 6-3 to make it look easier than it was.

"I was expecting it to be tricky ... and managed to play better," said Murray.

"Once I settled down and started playing well, I was in most of his service games. So I was putting pressure on him."

The fourth seed faces a third-round clash with 26th seed Milos Raonic, who defeated Arnaud Clement 7-6 6-2.
