Andy Murray eyes improvement after reaching Australian Open third round

Andy Murray is bidding to step his game up despite a comfortable win over Sam Groth at the Australian Open

Andy Murray insisted that there is still plenty of room for improvement after he booked his place in the third round of the Australian Open in style.

The British No1 overcame Australia’s Sam Groth to win 6-0 6-4 6-1 in one hour and 30 minutes and set up a clash with Portugal’s Joao Sousa.

Asked if this is the best he’s played at this stage of a grand slam, Murray replied: “No, it’s really impossible to say like if it’s the best you’ve played.

The match-ups can dictate that a little bit. There’s some things I certainly could have done better today. I could have served better, for sure. I didn’t serve a high percentage of first serves. I could have done that better.

“And from the back of the court, maybe because I wasn’t hitting loads of balls, I wasn’t hitting the ball from the back of the court as well as I did against Zverev.

“But a lot of things went well, too. The movement was good, anticipation. I felt like I closed the match out well.

“It’s been a very good start, for sure. But I can still get better, I think.”
