Andy Murray put the torments of the last two months behind him today, demolishing Radek Stepanek in just under 90 minutes, 6-1 6-4.

Stepanek doesn't posses any real weapons, but the Czech knows his own game very well and can be a tricky customer. The Scot showed some flashes of genuine form and dominated from behind the baseline to advance into the third round with little drama.

Next up is Gilles Simon, the number 16 seed.

Good report! Stepanek didn't turn out to be such a 'pushover' as I expected! He definately had his moments! It was a good match for Andy from all aspects! Thanks Boogers!

No TS, I don't think any of us will be! I for one didn't expect that great big 'slump' this year after the AO like he had last year! With all that brave talk, I thought he'd learnt from that! Obviously not! I was so pleased when he actually looked like he wanted to win today.......that he gave a damn! So I'm gonna settle for that for now, and just take each match [or even each set] one at a time!

He talked about going back to basics and that together with the hair (reminded me of 2009!) seemed to work for him today.  Imo he should gain confidence from the match today and hopefully will settle him now for the remaining matches.  He said in the post match interview that he tensed up slightly towards the end of the second set, it is good that he recognises that this is happening and dealing with it at the time, he seemed to be channelling his frustrations better (although there were still the odd expletive!)  Look forward to the rest of the tournament Andy and good luck to you.

^ For me, he can utter all the expletives he likes, if it gets him fired up, and to where he wants to be.  I suspect part of the problem is, that he's stifled his emotions so much, that it stifled his game. He's a nice lad, but by his own admission, has a firey temper.  Somewhere along the line, he hasn't got the balance right in terms of what and who he portrays on court.  This could be due to a number of influences.  Hoping it can all come good.
