- - MURRAY 6-2 6-4 - WINNER! Easy as you like for Murray as he races into a 40-0 lead. There's a slight hiccup when he mishits a drop shot, looping it up in the air for Querrey to tuck away - but it's only delaying the inevitable. Murray through about as comfortably as he could have hoped for. Terrific, confident display. Awaiting him in the last 16 is Jeremy Chardy of France. Drawsheet
- - MURRAY 6-2 5-4 - First point to Murray as Querrey blasts a backhand long - but the American digs in to hold. Murray will have an opportunity to serve out the game, however, after the change of ends.
- - MURRAY 6-2 5-3 - Querrey summons a major effort here, taking a few chances and bringing up a break point. Murray saves it - but cannot take his chance when gets game point. Querrey gets another break point opportunity - he'd had none until this game - Murray shuts him down with a vicious forehand down the line. There were several occasions against Djokovic and Federer at the Olympics where Murray prevented break points against him being converted - he repeats the trick here. He holds.
- - MURRAY 6-2 4-3 - Querrey holds on. Agasin, not pretty, but it's the least he can do if he's going to have a look at the Olympic champion's serve.
- - MURRAY 6-2 4-2 - Murray looking untouchable on his own serve - and stretches the lead back to two games. He only has to hold serve twice more to seal a comfortable and impressive victory against what looked on paper like a tricky opponent.
- - MURRAY 6-2 3-2 - No free points for Querrey - plenty for Murray. That's been the biggest difference between the pair in this match. Querrey gets to game point three times, but three times Murray denies him, before an error on a forehand approach gives Murray the break point chance. That is saved - but it's remarkably hard work.
- - MURRAY 6-2 3-1 - Classy hold from Murray, Querrey making no impression. A forehand return blasted down the tramlines seals the American's fate.
- - MURRAY 6-2 2-1 - Important for Querrey that he's been able to halt a run of six consecutive games for Murray with a service hold, but much still to be done by the American if he harbours serious hopes of progressing. Querrey won their last meeting, back in 2010 in Los Angeles - but Murray has always had the edge elsewhere, including here, when the pair clashed at the same stage in 2008.
- - MURRAY 6-2 2-0 - Querrey simply blocking back the Murray serve, and it's not giving the Scot much to think about. A couple of mistakes keep the American in the game at 30-30, but a controlled shot down the line, followed by an ace, keep Murray in front.
- - MURRAY 6-2 1-0 - BREAK! Murray begins the first set as he ended the second - emphatically. Querrey a bit bemused as a loopy top-spinning shot catches the line to earn break point, and it's immediately converted. Querrey feeling like he has to take risks, but it's leading to errors.
- - MURRAY 6-2 - SET! That's a terrific start from Murray - he's raced through in 34 minutes. The first serve percentage of 53% is still lower than he would like, but with just four unforced errors to his name he's making it up elsewhere. Querrey, currently the world number 29, will have to make a big step up in the second set or this second-round tussle could be over very soon.
- - MURRAY 5-2 - BREAK! It's the defence from Murray is just so outstanding - he fends off successive Querrey smashes, making him play that extra shot until he nets. At 0-40 it looks like a second break is inevitable, but Querrey thrashes a tasty shot down the line to save the first, a forehand winner to take the second, before an error restores deuce. Murray is not to be denied, however.
- - MURRAY 4-2 - Murray toying with Querrey here, inviting the American to attack him with a series of drop shots and deeper efforts, but his sheer confidence that he will be able to return anything Querrey can at him is what's telling. The defending champion in Cincinnati cements his break by holding his own serve. Murray has now won 12 points of the last 16.
- - MURRAY 3-2 - BREAK! Murray has developed a knack of winning points that seem lost by some dogged defence, and a lob with Querrey on the attack is one such example. Break point arises when Murray drills a return right on Querrey's toes, and a forehand error from the American hands the world number three the early advantage.
- - MURRAY 2-2 - Murray's groundstrokes look just that bit crisper, but so far only 33% of his first serves are finding the mark. That will need to improve - but despite those figures he still holds to thirty as Querrey struggles to get to grips with him.
- - MURRAY 1-2 - The Scot is just so difficult to fend off, and is one of the most dangerous returners in the game. Despite a big serve from Querrey, Murray forces a break point, but the American finds a way to save it, and as Murray goes looking for just a bit too much on the forehand, the break point opportunity slips away.
- - MURRAY 1-1 - Very solid counter from Murray - the Brit has improved his service in recent times, and eases away from 15-15 to hold in style. These two players have met five times before, with Murray leading the head-to-head 4-1.
- - MURRAY 0-1 - Confident start from Querrey, who races through the opener to love, finishing with a booming forehand down the line. Standing 6'6", Querrey is a powerful opponent with a solid serve. Murray will have to be at his best.
- - UP NOW: Murray v Querrey. Murray is the defending champion here, and comes into the tournament on the back of the biggest victory of his career to date, winning the Olympics at Wimbledon. He did, however, pull out of Toronto last week after a slight concern over an injury. He says there is nothing to worry about - we'll see as he takes on the world number 29. Tough draw against a home hope.
