World No.3 Andy Murray made a good start to his AEGON Championships campaign with a convincing 6-1, 6-4 victory over Italian Andreas Seppi in the second round.
After Seppi held serve in the first game, Murray reeled off eight straight games to lead 6-1, 2-0. A lapse in concentration by the home favourite allowed Seppi back at 2-2, but Murray capitalised on his fifth break of serve in the tenth game to win in 59 minutes.
Murray enters the AEGON Championships after a career-best quarter-final showing at Roland Garros and is bidding to become the first local player to win Queen’s Club since Bunny Austin in 1938. The Dunblane native who has won titles in Doha (d. Roddick), Rotterdam (d. Nadal) and Miami (d. Djokovic) improves to a 33-6 record for the season.
The 22 year-old will next face Guillermo Garcia-Lopez after the Spaniard knocked out Gilles Muller of Luxembourg 7-6(3), 6-3.
