Andy Murray, the world no. 4 and defending champion reached the last 16 of the Cincinnati Masters Tennis tournament as he defeated local player Sam Querrey of USA in straight sets 6-2,6-4.
"He's had some good wins, so I was expecting a tough match," said Murray. "I think that helped me. Was very sharp right at the beginning of the match. I needed to be, and it was a good start to the tournament."
"In the immediate aftermath of big wins or good tournaments, normally you'll feel quite confident and comfortable going for your shots in the important moments and even at the beginning of matches," he said. "I'm hoping it helps me not only this week but going into the US Open and big matches in the future. I think it will give me that extra bit of confidence and probably feel a bit calmer going into them."
