ANDY RACES INTO THE LAST 16

Andy swept past Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut on Centre Court to reach the second week of Wimbledon without dropping a set.

The pair had to wait until the early evening before getting under way, but Murray raced to a 6-2 6-3 6-2 win in one hour and 36 minutes.

Andy, 27, heads into round four on a 16-match winning streak at Wimbledon.

He will play 20th seed Kevin Anderson in the last 16 on Monday after the South African beat Fabio Fognini.

Bautista Agut, seeded 27th and ranked 23rd in the world, was expected to provided a sterner test, but Andy raised his level another notch as he dominated with 11 aces and 44 winners.

“There were a lot of close games and it’s good to get it done in straight sets,” Murray told BBC Sport.

“He’s the best opponent I’ve played so far, and as a step up I felt I responded well. There’s a few things I could improve on but it’s a good first week.”

“I had enough long matches in the French Open to get me physically ready.”
