Andy Murray thumped American Alex Bogomolov Jr in 58 minutes to reach the quarter-finals of the Japan Open today.

Despite enduring a tough battle against Marcos Baghdatis to get past the first stage of the tournament yesterday, the Scot sailed through to the quarter-finals after breaking Bogomolov's serve five times.

Murray has only lost once in his last 19 competitive matches.
