Murray d. Pastor 6-2 6-4!!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tennis/6053074.stm

Murray breezes through in Madrid

Murray's last win came against Fernando Gonzalez in New York
British number one Andy Murray made a confident start to his Madrid Masters campaign with a convincing win over Spanish qualifier Ivan Navarro Pastor.
Murray broke twice in the opening set and once in the second on his way to a 6-2 6-4 win - his first tour victory since the US Open last month.

The Scot will face a tough task against third seed Ivan Ljubicic in round two.

Fellow Briton Tim Henman takes on Spain's Fernando Verdasco in his opening match at 1900 BST on Monday.

Murray broke serve in the fourth and eighth games, taking the first set with a delicate lob as he swept through the opening set.

Pastor, ranked 129 in the world, put up sterner resistance in the second but cracked under the pressure when serving to stay in the match.

A cross-court forehand winner gave Murray victory on his second match point, after Pastor had saved the first with a net-cord.

Congrats to Murray! But the chances of him making it past the 2nd round are against him, let's hope for a win against Ljubicic. Go Andy!

He looked pretty good, I doubt he'll beat Ljubicic though

I support a lot of mugs.

Re: Murray d. Pastor 6-2 6-4!!

Aww, mixed emotions for me. Ivan (Navarro Pastor not Ljubicic) is one of my favourites so I'm sad for him.
At least he didn't lose to the part time wizardry of Rascon in qualies like RRH!

Andy Murray, Jonny Marray
Jamie Baker, Ross Hutchins, Richard Bloomfield, Colin Fleming
Roddick, Goffin, Karlovic, Inglot, Isner
Brown, Brands, Tsonga

Good performance from Murray. Ljubicic should pose a tougher test in the next round.

Murray is very good indoors. It is a shame he has such a tough draw, with the right draw he could go deep.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: Murray d. Pastor 6-2 6-4!!

Navarro has an interesting game - serve and volley on 1st serve or 3 meters behind baseline on 2nd..

Congrats to Ugly Andy!
Looking forward to his next match...
