Andy Murray: 'Good match from my end. Fognini is dangerous'

Andy Murray beat Dustin Brown 6-3 6-2 6-2 to advance into the third round at Wimbledon. 'It was a good match from my end', said after the match Murray, who hit 31 winners. 'I mean, I served well until really the last few games.

I returned well. I didn’t make many mistakes. I hit a lot of good passing shots. So, I mean, I was really happy with it, obviously.' Murray will face Fabio Fognini next: 'I think he's always dangerous', said the World No.

1 about Fognini. 'He’s a shot maker and very solid off his forehand and backhand side, but can also hit winners from both sides. He has good hands up at the net as well. I expect it to be very tough. When Fabio is switched on, he’s really tough to beat.' Fognini last beat Murray a month and a half ago in Rome in straight sets: 'If I have to be honest, I think it's completely different to play here', the Italian admitted.

I played at home [in Italy], so I played a really good match', Fognini said. 'Here it's completely different. Of course, it's Wimbledon. It's home for him. It's best of five. Something can change. Of course, he's the defending champion.

So it's going to be really tough, for sure. He's the favourite. But I think I have the game to play against him, hopefully to play my best tennis another time, try to complicate his life on court.' Brown admitted that Murray played really well despite rumours about hip injury: 'Well, if he has a problem with his hip, I don’t want to play against him when his hip is good.

Obviously there was speculation about it, people saying he’s not walking or whatever. I hit a lot of dropshots in the beginning, tried to get him in to see how the hip is, pull him into the forehand. From my opinion, he doesn’t really care about any of that stuff.

He played really well. Most of the guys you play, you can try to find a way where you know you can hurt them. If you do it, the whole match is a different situation. I think the deeper it goes, the more difficult it’s going to be to beat him.

I think Rog (Federer), playing his game and being aggressive and coming in, that would probably be the right way to do it. Like I said, I tried. The way he played today, I think it’s only going to get better. I think it’s going to be very difficult, hence why he won last year.'
