Murray through in straight sets

WORLD No2 Andy Murray reached round three of the Cincinnati Open with a straight sets win over Russian Mikhail Youzhny yesterday.

The Scot, surprisingly beaten in the Rogers Cup third round last week in his first outing since winning the Wimbledon title, triumphed 6-2, 6-3 in 70 minutes.

Murray will play world No36 Julien Benneteau next and said: “He’s caused upsets before, so I need to be ready for that one.”
