Murray knew he had not played anywhere near his peak but it was a job done satisfactorily.He told Sky Sports: "No matter how you start your match you need to make your opponent work hard.I didn't hit it unbelievable today but I worked hard. Once I got the breakthrough he made mistakes.But it is unbelievably hot and windy."Training in Florida was an aid to Murray, who added: "It's tough to feel comfortable, maybe more for myopponent because I am used to the court and the wind and the humidity."
Once I got ahead, I played consistently. I served pretty well and didn't give him toomany opportunities.
