Andy stormed into his campaign in Toronto with a sensational performance against Nick Kyrgios that lasted just under an hour. Beating him handily 6-2 6-2. The hard work continues for the Scot in the next round as he faces a familiar foe in the shape of flamboyant Frenchman Richard Gasquet, who like Murray has not had a notable season, battling a back injury at the beginning of the year which ruled him out of most events up until the French Open. However, Gasquet has reached two finals this year in Montpellier and Eastbourne, as well as a semi final appearance in Washington just last week, meaning he is showing signs of form coming into this encounter.
Murray and Gasquet have played on eight occasions in the past, with Murray leading a very tight head to head of 5-3.
