Murray finding his rhythm

The world number four beat Spaniard Daniel Gimeno-Traver 6-3 6-1, giving an opponent who was handed a wild card into the tournament no hope of an upset.
Reflecting on his win, Murray said: “At first I struggled a bit to get into the match because I had been so long without playing, but gradually I felt more comfortable. My goal is to get more rhythm and confidence back in my game.”
Now Murray has a day to prepare for his second-round clash with Argentinian Leonardo Mayer, who he has never previously played.
Murray and Mayer were born on the same day – May 15, 1987 – but they are worlds apart in terms of their careers.
Murray has won 13 tour titles, including five so far this year, and has already made a fortune in playing earnings during his career, while world number 64 Mayer has only just started to make an impact at the highest level.
