Andy Murray hardly broke sweat as the British number one strolled into the Wimbledon third round with a straight-sets victory over Robin Haase.
Murray was left unsatisfied by his battling first-round win over Mikhail Kukushkin on Tuesday, but this was a near-faultless performance from the Scot, who cruised through 6-1 6-1 6-4.
Outclassed for the best part of 50 minutes, Haase threw caution to the wind at the start of the third set, unleashing a thundering forehand winner, which was greeted with raptures of encouragement from his box.
The more aggressive approach paid dividends during a short spell of parity, but for every winner from Haase there was also an unforced error and Murray soon capitalised in the seventh game with another break.
Haase continued to blast away until the end but Murray was more than able to keep up as a thumping backhand of his own sealed a comfortable victory in one hour and 28 minutes.
Italian Andreas Seppi or Croatia’s talented 18-year-old Borna Coric now await in round three as Murray continues his bid for a second title at the All England Club.
