British number one Andy Murray has successfully secured a place in the quarter-finals of the Japan Open by defeating Lukas Lacko 6-1 6-2 in Tokyo.

The Scotsman claimed the first set with ease in just 25 minutes by breaking his opponent at the first time of asking and maintaining his dominance to secure the lead.

Lacko could only get two games on the board in the second set as Murray executed a number of strong serves and precise forehands and returns to secure the second and the match.
