Bai trap fails to trouble Murray
Thursday 14 October 2010
Yan Bai, ranked No 465 in the world, had been good enough to beat Radek Stepanek in the first round of the Shanghai Masters but the 21-year-old Chinese was unable to spring another surprise when he met Andy Murray yesterday. Murray beat Bai 6-2, 6-2 in 81 minutes to earn a third-round tie today with France's Jérémy Chardy, who beat Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-1, 5-7, 6-2.
Murray dropped his serve once but looked in a more positive frame of mind than at last week's China Open in Beijing. "I moved well from the start of the match," the world No 4 said. "I hit the ball very cleanly."
