Andy Murray
Murray was rarely alarmed by Matosevic during his three-set win.

Andy Murray sailed into the third round of the French Open with a comprehensive three-set win over Australian Marinko Matosevic at Roland Garros.

The 27 year old won 6-3 6-1 6-3 in little under two hours to set up a last 32 meeting against German Philipp Kohlschreiber as his impressive form on clay continued.

Matosevic, playing his first ever gland slam second round match, rarely threatened as the British No.1 made up for requiring four sets to beat Andrey Golubev in the first round by producing a complete performance of Court 1.

World No. 70 Matosevic was playing in his first ever glam slam second round after beating Dustin Brown in four sets to clinch his maiden major win at the 13th attempt.

But the Australian's unfamiliarity with the situation showed in the opening game with Murray clinching a break after a wide sliced backhand from the 28 year old.

Though the Wimbledon champion was playing short of his best, Matosevic was struggling to produce the basics and the Brit took the opening set 6-3 without alarm.

A break early in the second set helped cement Murray's position of dominance and the when the world No.8 prevailed after a lengthy baseline exchange to secure a double break his place in the third round was all-but assured.

And with Murray's eighth ace of the match he sailed into a two-set lead as Matosevic's threat began to wilt.

Murray's grip on the match tighened further still with a break in a 16-minute first game of the third set and stood on the brink of victory as the Matosevic serve was distmantled once again.

The Scot was broken himself when serving for the match after a brief Matosevic flurry but normality resumed in the next as Murray converted the first of three match points to strole into round three where he will face world No.24 Kohlschreiber, who won the pair's only ever meeting on clay in Monte Carlo in 2010.
