Andy Murray equalled Tim Henman’s Open-era record for career wins by a British man by reaching the quarter-finals at Indian Wells.

The Scot eased past unseeded Frenchman Adrian Mannarino 6-3 6-3 to set up a last-eight clash with Spaniard Feliciano Lopez.

And the 27-year-old said that he was unaware about equalling Henman’s record after his match.

Murray, runner-up at Indian Wells in 2009, joked: “I wasn’t aware of that, it’s probably one of the few records Tim still had over me.”

Asked about his win over Mannarino, who he played for the first time on Wednesday, Murray added: “He’s playing very well this year, he’s got a very tricky game, quite hard to read, moves very well and has good hands but in both sets he played one or two loose games which helped me.”
