GLORY TRAIL he bids to make up for Wimbledon agony
Once I went a break up in the second set it was important to stay focused because I was getting a lot of free points from my serve.
“I needed to try to keep that up and I think I did a good job.”
Murray’s victory was never in doubt after he secured an early break – and the Scot took just 63 minutes to finish the job.
Now he goes head to head with Baghdatis as he attempts to make good his pledge to make up for his firstround exit in Beijing four years ago.
The pair met in the third round during the Wimbledon championships earlier in the summer when the Cypriot pushed Murray all the way before he was seen off by the Scot.
And the No.3 seed knows he will face another testing clash if he is to secure his place in the fourth round.
He said: “I had a tough match with Marcos at Wimbledon just a few weeks ago.
“I certainly won’t be taking anything for granted there. It’s going to be very, very tough.
“He’s a very, very good grass-court player. I’ll need to play well to win that one.”
Murray’s schedule is set to get a little more congested after it was confirmed yesterday that he will be handed a wildcard entry into the mixed doubles with Laura Robson.
The British duo will face Czechs Lucie Hradecka and Radek Stepanek today.
And, with only 16 pairs in the draw, they will need only two victories to clinch a chance of playing for one of the medals.
