  1. - - MURRAY 6-3 6-4 - GAME, SET & MATCH - Murray produces a couple of aces in the final game to serve out the match to love and seal his progression to the quarter-finals of the Miami Masters. Next up for the Scot will be Serbia's Janko Tipsarevic. Miami Masters drawsheet

  2. - - MURRAY 6-3 5-4 - Simon does well to hold on despite some pressure from Murray and force the Scot to serve out the match after the change of ends

  3. - - MURRAY 6-3 5-3 - Murray works his way into the net to land a reactionary backhand volley right on to the back of the baseline. Simon thought he had done enough but Murray somehow managed to get the ball back and the Frenchman could only hit wide. He will have to serve to stay in this match next

  4. - - MURRAY 6-3 4-3 - BREAK - Murray makes another cracking start to a Simon service game, racing into the net and finding a sliced backhand winner across court. And this time he does take full advantage of it as he goes on to break by pushing Simon back deep behind the baseline and drawing the error.

  5. - - MURRAY 6-3 3-3 - Again Murray appears to be cruising in a game, this time at 40-0 up, only to be pegged back by Simon. Murray does hold, though, a big first serve and forehand winner combo doing the trick to see him level up

  6. - - MURRAY 6-3 2-3 - Murray rattles a running backhand winner down the line to earn himself a couple of break points but he can take advantage of neither of them and Simon, eventually, goes on to hold with a forehand winner

  7. - - MURRAY 6-3 2-2 - Over on the Grandstand Court meanwhile, Andy Murray has held without too much trouble once again to level up and firmly keep the pressure in the Simon camp

  8. - - MURRAY 6-3 1-2 - Murray is left yelling at himself in frustration after missing a forehand that he thinks he should have landed. Simon goes on to hold and sneak in front once again in this second set

  9. - - MURRAY 6-3 1-1 - Murray cruises through another easy service hold, sealing the game to 15 when Simon hits an off-balance forehand return well long of the baseline. Murray looks firmly in control now and happy just to bide his time in the early stages of this second set

  10. - - MURRAY 6-3 0-1 - Simon does well to put that first set behind him and hold for the opening game of the second set, when Murray fails to find the court with a forehand

  11. - - MURRAY 6-3 - SET - Murray serves out the set to love with a second serve ace down the centre of the court. He thought he'd ace Simon on the first serve but the ball was marginally out and so he corrected it on the second

  12. - - MURRAY 5-3 - Murray makes a bit of a move as he pushes Simon to 30-30 before the Frenchman finds a deep forehand, that the Scot can only hit into the net, and a forehand winner to leave Murray serving for the opening set

  13. - - MURRAY 5-2 - Another pretty cruisey hold of serve from Murray sees him force Simon to serve to stay in this opening set after the change of ends

  14. - - MURRAY 4-2 - Simon produces a spectacular running forehand winner down the line to get himself out of a spot of bother at 0-30 down. It seems to spark something in Simon as he quickly goes on to hold when Murray unsuccessfully challenges a cross court backhand, which is shown by hawkeye to have caught the outside of the line

  15. - - MURRAY 4-1 - A break to love followed by a hold to love from Murray to consolidate that lead, Simon sending another forehand long, to hand the game to the Scot. Murray firmly in control of this opening set now

  16. - - MURRAY 1-3 - BREAK - Having survived that brutal first game, it is Murray that draws first blood, breaking to love when Simon sends what should be a fairly straightforward forehand long down the centre of the court

  17. - - MURRAY 2-1 - Better from Murray this time around on serve. He doesn't exactly find it easy still but he does at least hold in less than 10 minutes, a forehand drawing the error from Simon

  18. - - MURRAY 1-1 - Compared with Murray's opening service game Simon has it incredibly easy, taking just a couple of minutes to post a love hold, albeit still with a couple of rallies that get into the double figures for strokes

  19. - - MURRAY 1-0 - An absolutely epic opening service game from Murray as he eventually holds after just over 16 minutes! Simon held three break points in that game, one of which was set up with a bullet of a forehand winner down the line, but Murray managed to save them all and finally goes on to hold after a typically lengthy rally, Simon hitting into the net off a tricky cross court forehand from the Scot

  20. - - Murray and Simon are ready to get underway and it will be the world number four to kick things off by serving first ...

  21. - - Fouth seed Andy Murray and 13th seeded Gilles Simon are out on the Stadium Court and going through their warm-up. So we should be able to get that clash underway shortly
