The defending champion looked the stronger of the two from the start as he claimed a break in the opening game of the match, before wrapping up the set 6-1.

The world number five doubled his lead by claiming the second by the same scoreline as he cruised towards a place in round three.

Rola had few chances against the Scot's serve. He did have the opportunity to break back a couple of times, but the third seed was able to up his game each time.

While 4-0 down in the third set, Rola tried to get back into contention with some big serves, but a double fault allowed Murray to break again and serve for the match after less than 90 minutes on court.

The Briton will face either Jan Hernych or Roberto Bautista Agut in the next round.
