Murray safely through in China

TENNIS: Andy Murray cruised into the second round of the China Open yesterday after a comfortable 6-2, 6-3 victory over French qualifier Paul-Henri Mathieu in Beijing.

“I thought I did well,” said second seed Murray. “I started well and didn’t give him any chances except for a couple of break points on my serve in the second set.”
He now takes on Spain’s Albert Montanes in round two.
