Murray Strolls Past Marcel Granollers into Aussie Third Round

It was a walk in the park for Andy Murray today as he made short work of his second-round opponenet Marcel Granollers in the 2009 Australian Open. He beat his 22 year old Spaniard opponent and former hitting partner when Murray trained in Spain as a boy in straight sets 6-4 6-2 6-2

The fourth seed, Murray did not produce great tennis, he didn’t need to and to use the over used phrase if he wanted to, he could have moved up a gear at any point.

The Scot will now face Austrian Jurgen Melzer, seeded 31, in the third round on Saturday.

After the match Andy Murray told reporters,

I felt like once I got ahead I could settle down, To come through in straight sets is obviously important. It was a good test to have at this stage in the tournament.
