Murray broke early in the second and never looked in trouble on his own serve as he moved further in front by taking the set 6-4.

Goffin was more composed in the third set and had break-point chances on the Murray serve, but couldn't take them and was soon put away.

Murray broke through to go 6-5 in front before finishing the encounter with his eighth ace.

Up next for the Scot in round two is a match against Slovenia's Blaz Rola on Wednesday.
