Cool Murray breezes through to third round

Written by Sports Desk

andy-murray-2013-australian-open-first-roundAndy Murray kept his cool in a Melbourne scorcher to reach the third round of the Australian Open with a businesslike 6-2 6-2 6-4 victory over Joao Sousa on Hisense Arena.
The British third seed looked intent on keeping his time in the heat and humidity to the absolute minimum, wrapping up victory in just 101 minutes when his Portuguese opponent went long with a return.
Two breaks in the first set, a couple in the second and one more in the third proved enough to set up a meeting with Lithuanian Ricardas Berankis, who earlier stunned German 25th seed Florian Mayer 6-2 6-3 6-1.
The convincing natuure of Berankis's win over Mayer indicated that he might prove trickier for the Scot than the game but limited Sousa.
Murray unveiled his full repertoire of shots in his contest and every one was superior to that possessed by his Portuguese opponent.
