WATCH: Highlights of Andy Murray’s second-round win at the Biella Challenger Indoor in Italy
Andy Murray required just under two hours to see off Gian Marco Moroni in the second round of the Biella Challenger Indoor in Italy.
The top seed, playing at the ATP Challenger Tour event after he was unable to travel to Melbourne for the Australian Open following a positive coronavirus result, booked his place in the quarter-final with a 6-4, 6-4 win.
Murray broke in games three and seven of the opening set, but his Italian opponent got one break back in game eight while a single break in game nine of the second set secured the win.
