Andy Murray admitted he feels most at home on the courts of the Miami Masters after cruising past Andreas Seppi to reach the quarter-finals.

The world No3, who is yet to drop a set en route to the last eight in Miami, breezed past his Italian opponent 6-2 6-4 to set up a showdown with ninth seed Marin Cilic.

And Murray, who is based in Miami throughout the year, says he feels more comfortable on the American courts than he does on the grass of Queen’s club or Wimbledon.

“I practice on that court all the time, on the centre court here, so for me this is the court,” said Murray, who won the Miami title in 2009.

“I never practice on the grass courts at Queen’s and I never practice on the grass courts at Wimbledon, either, because you’re not allowed to during the year.

“This is where I spend most of my time training. This is where I do go through a lot of my tough on-court training sessions.

“So I would say that here is the court that I feel most comfortable on just because I train on it all the time.”
