Murray in a hurry to reach the quarter-finals

Andy Murray eased into the quarter-finals of the Thailand Open in Bangkok yesterday with a routine straight-sets win over Germany's Michael Berrer.

The British No 1 and top seed at the hard court event needed just 70 minutes to beat the world No 88, 6-4, 6-2. Murray will now face the winner of the match between Grigor Dimitrov and Simone Bolelli for a place in the semi-finals.

Murray cantered to the opening set on the back of a lone break of serve before breaking twice in the second to clinch the match.
