Murray eases past Mathieu

Andy Murray eased into the defence of his Queen's Club Aegon Championships title with a routine straight-sets victory over Paul-Henri Mathieu.
The reigning Queen's and Wimbledon champion will now face 15th seed Radek Stepanek in the third round, after negotiating his way past Mathieu to win 6-4 6-4.
Murray enjoyed a leisurely first training session with new coach Amelie Mauresmo on Wednesday morning, before the former Australian Open and Wimbledon champion took a watching brief for her new client's straightforward victory.
Murray might have been eclipsed by eventual champion Rafael Nadal in the French Open semi-finals, but Mathieu beat Aljaz Bedene 7-6 (7-2) 6-4 in the first round to set up his clash with Murray.
The 32-year-old current world number two has moved as high as 12 in his career, but was unable to bring that pedigree to bear against Murray.
