The Brit seems to be back in form, which will please his coach Ivan Lendl, who was present at the match this time. Murray won the Miami Masters title in 2009, but couldn’t get passed his first matches in the last two years.
Murray broke his opponent five times as he cruised to a comfortable victory in just 1 hour in 16 minutes. In round three, he will play the winner of the match between Milos Raonic of Canada and the French qualifier Arnaud Clement.
6th seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga won his second round match against Xavier Malisse of Belgium in straight sets 7-5 7-5.
In the next round, Tsonga will face Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany, who defeated Frederico Gil of Portugal 6-2 7-5.
In the other matches, French Gilles Simon overcame the Spanish qualifier Roberto Bautista Agut 6-4 6-2, Alexandr D0lgopolov of Ukraine dismissed the Croatian qualifier Antonio Veic 6-4 7-5 and the 22nd seed Jurgen Melzer of Austria beat Robin Haase of Netherlands 7-6 (2) 3-6 6-4.
