Andy Murray will face Daniil Medvedev in the second round of the Miami Open after advancing past Federico Delbonis in straight sets on Thursday. 

Neither player was able to gain an early advantage in a first set that did not feature a single break point. 

 The tie-breaker then carried on in a similar vein until Murray was able to take a 6-4 advantage on an unforced error from Delbonis, which the Argentinian followed up with a double fault.

The three-time grand slam champion went up an immediate break in the second and never looked like losing from there and his win set up a meeting with the Australian Open runner-up. 

Speaking after the match, Murray said he was looking forward to the clash with Medvedev.  

“Obviously a tough match,” he said. “He’s played extremely well on the hard courts the last few seasons. He deserves to be right up there at the top of the game. 

“It’ll be a big challenge for me; it’ll be a great test. I’ve got a big training block after this tournament, and it’ll be a really good test,
