No there wasn't any coverage anywhere - it doesn't start until tomorrow. Though last year Sky showed a few points from the end of the Bogomolov match so maybe they'll be able to do the same tomorrow.

Murray Mad

Andy Murray advanced to the third round of the Sony Ericsson Open today with a routine 6-2, 6-3 victory over Alejandro Falla.

Under normal circumstances Murray would have been expected to make quick work of the Colombian, ranked 71 in the world. After last weeks shocking defeat to Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, many pundits wondered if the Scot was about to succombe to another bout of post Australian Open malaise.

Thankfully this was not the case - not that many Murray fans were able to see the evidence for themselves. For reasons known only to the tournament organizers and TV networks, live coverage of the event only begins tomorrow.
Amazing report given the lack of real sensory input for the news team reporter.

Phew!! Just grateful for a win after the disappointment of last week.  Does anybody have a rough idea when the next match might be?  Cheers

Touch the sky - and touch it he did.

Interesting stat from the BBC website - 67% points won on both 1st and 2nd serve.  V unusual for Andy to do that well on 2nd serve.  And although his 1st serve % was too low and included 2 dfs, he did serve 4 aces.   I'd like to see a report which tells us how his bh was doing - and also his fh (though from some tweets relayed during the match sounded like the latter was firing well).

He obviously played well having read the report.
Let us just take each round as it comes, he will be fine.  Come on lets us enjoy the tournment with Andy playing well. He will.!! just do not run his game down all the time, service percentage etc. These players work hard and do there best but they are all humans like you and I.

Not running him down jdonald - indeed I think I'm seen as one of those who are too uncritical of our Andy!  Just would like to see a more detailed report as none of us was actually able to watch the match and while I agree we can only take one round at a time I would so like him to win Miami again this year.

Andy "Braveheart" Murray

Very relieved Andy got the win, was following the scores online at work, very nervous it's worse than watching at least when you watch him you get an idea of how he is playing, coping with the conditions etc.  See from the pictures that Kim is with him in Miami, so maybe Mr L and Kim are putting him at ease.  Tiny bit worried about the threat of Ranoic but Andy has previously coped well with big servers and after a bit manages to neutralise them, he takes a few games to read the serve but he is very good at it.  Would love to see Andy have a good run here and close the gap on Fed.  Come on Andy onwards and upwards.

After reading the ESPN article, no wonder that Andy would have been nervous in this match.  I didn't know he hadn't won a match since 2009.  Well it's good that he has that behind him and can not be so nervous.

Just nit-picking Phil ... should be 'succumb'! - But hey, who cares, Andy won!! yay  And CBS should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves for depriving us loyal fans of watching the match. grr

From David Law

First time I've spoken to #Murray since Lendl arrangement started. Very open and forthcoming in interview. He is clearly fascinated by Lendl
Some of the things #Murray has heard about the lengths #Lendl used to go to to win are comical. Detailed in our interview. 5 Live tonight.

Don't know what time that will be though.

There's a match report here http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/tennis/17485453

Really great picture of Andy, with his great smile and a Jon Wertheim article.
