BOTH Murray brothers have been motoring along well at this week’s Cincinnati Masters out in Ohio.
Andy made it through his second round meeting with American Sam Querrey, winning in straight sets 7-6 6-1 on Wednesday.
It may have been an unconvincing start in that first set, Murray falling behind 3-0 early on, but he stuck with the task and took it to a tie-break which he won comfortably 7-3.
All change for the second set, Murray this time leaving Querrey standing, going 4-0 up. There was to be no heroic comeback for the American, however, and Murray played out the match with ease.
Andy was getting set to face Russian Dmitry Tursunov in round three last night (Thursday) as the Observer went to press.
Jamie, meanwhile, hasn’t been doing too badly on the doubles courts either. He and playing partner for Cincinnati, Simon Aspelin, had a great win over number seven seeds Martin Damm and Pavel Vizner.
They now await the winners of the match between Robert Lindstedt and Jarkko Nieminen and third seeds Jonathan Erlich and Andy Ram.
