Andy Murray beats Marinko Matosevic to complete second win of the day
The British number one beat Nicolas Mahut at Queens earlier
Thursday 13 June 2013
Andy Murray completed his second win of the day at Queens with a 6-2 6-2 victory over Australian Marinko Matosevic.
It was the British number one's second taste of victory of the day, having beaten Nicolas Mahut 6-3 7-6 (7-4) in their rain delayed match earlier.
Poor weather yesterday with his match against Mahut at 6-3, 2-2 led to the suspension of play and today's congestion.
Yet despite the circumstances, Murray made light work of his opponents at the Aegon Championships.
Speaking to the BBC after the match, Murray said: "This afternoon was tricky, it was extremely windy. I had to be patient and not play high risk tennis too closely to the lines. I have been moving fairly well in the first couple of match and hopefully that will get better.
"They were two very different matches - the second was more baseline while Mahut played more closely to the net. Hopefully the wind calms down a bit tomorrow and we will see more good tennis."
The world number two's next opponent is Benjamin Becker of Germany.
