[/float]Andy Murray continued his searing form at the Madrid Masters this week with an impressive 6-1 6-3 victory over Juan Ignacio Chela.
The Scot won the first five games in quick succession and rapidly secured the first set, as Chela failed to contend with Murray's varied and accurate groundstrokes.
The British number one was playing some of the best tennis of his young career as he broke again early in the second set, and continued to set the arena alight with winners of the highest quality. The Argentine awoke from his slumber mid way through the set, but Murray extinguished any remaining hope of a comeback, as he saved break points and broke serve again to seal the match.Interview
It was awesome. I played really well. I was really happy to win so convincingly. Some of the shots I played were pretty special as well.
I struggled a little bit the last few weeks. I was starting to do little things better but not everything was coming together in one match…so it’s taken a long time to come.
I’m enjoying playing tennis much more now. Hopefully I can keep this up for the next few tournaments.
Next up for the world number seventeen is the victor of the Baghdatis/Nadal clash which will be played tomorrow evening.
