Murray Meets Dauntless Crew

Andy Murray got some sea support in the desert today.

The crew of the HMS Dauntless was in the stands cheering for the third-seeded Scot during his 6-4, 7-5 victory over Gilles Muller.

Murray broke the big-serving lefty three times in the one hour, 45-minute victory.

"I made him work very hard in his service games, which is something I wanted to do in the match," Murray said.

It wasn't all smooth sailing.

The crew support seemed to help as Murray twice served for the match before sealing it to set up a round of 16 encounter against Joao Sousa.

"I think the end of both sets I didn't serve so well," said Murray. "But apart from that, I didn't give him any opportunities really. I feel like I got a little bit unlucky at the end of the second set. He got a couple of net cords in that last game, the 5-4 game where I got broken, and did very well to respond straightaway and get the break right back. I thought I played a fairly high quality match."
