Andy Murray will face world number two Daniil Medvedev in the second round of the Miami Open after the tournament began with a victory over Federico Delbonis in direct sets.

Murray defeated Argentine Delbonis 7-6 (7-4) 6-1 on Thursday, releasing him to win the second set after a tight first set in which there was not a single break.

The Scots eventually gained a 6: 4 advantage in the secret and wrapped the set when Delbonis blamed it twice.

Murray broke in the second set and was on his way to victory when he bounced back from defeating Alexander Bublik in Kazakhstan in the second round in Indian Wells last week.

This is followed by a duel with the best-placed Medvedev, two behind Rafael Nadal at the January Australian Open.

Medvedev recently spent three weeks as world number one and has to make it to the semifinals in Miami to beat Novak Djokovic again at the top of the men’s game.

Murray said of his meeting with Medvedev: “[It’s] obviously a tough match. He has played exceptionally well on hard courts in recent seasons. He deserves to be up there at the top of the game.

“It will be a big challenge for me, it will be a great test of where my game is and what I have to work on.”
