With scheduling issues resulting in delays to the start of the match, Murray is happy to have breezed past his opponent.
"It was a good start, I played well today," Murray told reporters. "He's a very tricky opponent to play against, he's unpredictable.
"He's a fun guy to watch but he can be a bit of a nightmare to play against, so it's good that I got off to a good start, especially after waiting around all day."
