Andy Murray returns after wedding with win over Mischa Zverev in Munich
Andy Murray eased back into tennis following his wedding earlier this month, and into the quarter-finals of the BMW Open in Munich, with a 6-2, 6-2 win over the Russia-born, Monaco-based German qualifier Mischa Zverev.
In his first match since his marriage to Kim Sears, the Scot showed no ill-effects from his short break as he brushed Zverev aside in an hour and 15 minutes.
As the top seed, Murray was handed a bye in the first round, and he broke Zverev in the first and third games to open up a 4-0 lead before serving out the first set.
Two further breaks of serve were enough to do the job for the world No3, who will next face Lukas Rosol, a 7-5, 6-2 winner over Sergiy Stakhovsky.
“It wasn’t too easy,” Murray, who saved six break points on his way to victory, told BBC Sport. “He had a different style to most other players and it was tricky playing against a left-hander but I got the important points.
“He was returning from a long way back. My forehand went better than my backhand but it was a good first match for me.”
