Andy Murray eased into the quarter-finals of the Rome Masters with a 6-2 6-3 win over Potito Starace.
Murray, who showed great determination and spirit, only struggled once in the match when Starace redressed an earlier Murray break to level the second set at 3-3.
I thought I moved very well tonight, and I won a lot of points on long rallies where I probably shouldn't have, and at important moments
The Scot now plays German Florian Mayer in the the last eight of the Rome Masters.
Our match report doesn't seem up to it's usual standards
Some amazing gets.
Andy seems to forget at times that he's a great hustler
Alas, I don't think I set the timer on my video long enough for this match - must have been a long match before. Never mind, I am happy in the knowledge that I'll be up for him tonight
