Murray makes short work of Kamke
London: Home hope Andy Murray reached the third round at Wimbledon with a routine 6-3, 6-3, 7-5 win over German Tobias Kamke on Wednesday.
The fourth seed continued the fluent form which brought him the Queen`s title this month, serving solidly and denying his opponent many chances to attack.
Murray, bidding to become the first British men`s singles champion at Wimbledon for 75 years, broke serve to lead 6-5 in the third set and he sealed victory with a service winner on his first match point.
The Scotsman, a semifinalist for the last two years, next takes on Croatian veteran Ivan Ljubicic for a place in the last 16.
"He serves well. That always makes it difficult. His best results are on grass, which is surprising for someone that serves like him, that makes it tricky," said Murray.
"I served well today, but the rest of my game needs some work," said Murray after his Court One workout.
