Murray eases through to second round at BNP Paribas Open Indian Wells, set to face Alcaraz

Andy Murray has breezed through to the second round at the BNP Paribas Open Indian Wells with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over a potentially tricky test in Adrian Mannarino in his opener.

Murray took the win in just under an hour and a half in California sealing a solitary break in the opening set at 40-15 going 4-2 up against the Frenchman before sweeping his serve to win 6-3.

A double break saw him ease through the motions further in the second set and saving break points in serving for the match, he sealed the tie on the second match point.

Statistics wise, it was five aces as he held advantage on the 1st serve and second serve points won with 82% and 62% with Murray showing his dominance having to only save one break point.

Next up is Carlos Alcaraz in what could be a match of the round contender even at this early stage. Alexander Zverev could await further in the next round.
