Andy Murray wins down under

Andy Murray has glided through to the 2nd round of the Australian Open after Romania's Andrei Pavel retired with a back injury.

The 45 minute match was no more than an exhibition match for GB’s number 1 and his loyal travelling Celtic army. The biggest tests were the sweltering temperatures which pushed 37C and the unpredictable wind (insert flatulence joke here) before it all ended 6-2 3-1.

Murray faces Marcel Granollers in the 2nd next, let’s hope he doesn’t throw a Spaniard in the works.
