Barcelona R3: Murray def. Giraldo 6-1 6-2

Strong play from the Scot. Had a couple of lapses, but it was never in doubt. Some very aggressive returning and he hit his forehand well today and used the dropshot effectively, moved the ball around and used the full dimensions of the court intelligently. Also 9 aces and a high first serve percentage.

Giraldo made way too many errors, as expected, and his serve was ineffective. Terrible match-up for him.

Re: Barcelona R3: Murray def. Giraldo 6-1 6-2

Great Britain's Andy Murray reached the quarter-final stage of the ATP 500 tournament in Barcelona today after a relatively straightforward victory over Colombian world No. 54 Santiago Giraldo.

Murray broke Giraldo's serve twice in the first set, saving two break points on his own serve as he took the set 6-1.

The Briton looked on course for an easy victory as he broke Giraldo again at the start of the set to surge to a 2-0 lead. As is so often the case with Murray though, it wasn't all plain sailing as Giraldo broke back to level the second set at 2-2.

Murray clearly wasn't fazed by this setback though as he won the next four games to seal a 6-1 6-2 victory in one hour and fourteen minutes.

Next up will be a meeting with Canadian Milos Raonic, who is yet to drop a set en route to the quarter-finals. This will be the their first competitive meeting.

Murray will also take to the courts again later today for his second round doubles match later today as he and his brother Jamie face seventh seeds Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi and Jean-Julien Rojer.

Fazed. Argh! (I'm not being snotty making this correction as it sounds as though you're quoting a news report anyway, so don't take it personally. This particular mistake is just doing my head in and I feel the need to stamp it out.)

Well, I did write that myself so perhaps I would take it personally if I weren't so happy that you'd mistaken it for a genuine news report.

Thanks for alerting me to my error, I would've kept saying that unless you'd said. You're my grammar angel for the day .
