    For me though, that is it for today.

    But come back later for Radio 5 live sports extra's coverage of Lleyton Hewitt v David Ferrer.

    Thanks for your company and have a good day.


  2. Post update

    A decent third-round draw awaits Andy Murray.

    Portugal's Joao Sousa, ranked 33, beat Colombia's Santiago Giraldo 6-3 7-5 3-6 6-1 earlier.

    He has never gone beyond the third round in any grand slam.

    Murray will take that.

  4. Player reaction

    Andy Murray: "It is nice to play different styles. Sam is different, coming to the net a lot but when he serves well it is easy to get impatient.

    "He didn't start serving well but in the second set it became much tougher.

    "I was standing next to him in the locker room before the match and he was saying to someone it was his first time on Rod Laver, He had never even hit before on it.

    "I thought 'good'."

    Murray also reveals he named one of his dogs after Australian Lleyton Hewitt.

    British Davis Cup doubles player Colin Fleming: "He has had nice straight set victories, has looked in shape and conserved his energy for tougher tests ahead."

  6. Game, set and match

    Groth 0-6 4-6 1-6 Murray

    A nasty end for Sam Groth as he turns his ankle at the net on the opening point as another Murray shot flies past him.

    He hobbles back to the baseline but, latching onto a Murray drop shot, fires a backhand down the line to level at 15-15. His ankle looked okay there.

    Murray down the line and he is two points from the match. A Groth forehand winner delays the inevitable but an ace brings about match point.

    Another ace and it is over. Brilliant from Murray. Over in 90 minutes.

  7. Murray breaks!

    Groth 0-6 4-6 1-5 Murray*

    Groth is passed again, this time by a Murray backhand. The Australian keeps coming forward but it is almost as though he isn't there for the Brit.

    A couple of Groth errors, following good Murray returns, and we have three more break points.

    A lob.... just wide from Murray. A second break point saved by a punched Groth volley and deuce following an unreturnable first serve.

    The Australian is fighting. But another break point after another backhand service return winner. That sums it up. Groth hammers down a serve, can see Murray is going to smash past another return, and challenges his own serve.

    It was in and another break. Murray serving for the match.

    *Groth 0-6 4-6 1-4 Murray

    An extended rally at the baseline and, as seems the norm, Murray wins out as Groth nets.

    Ever the perfectionist, the Brit is angry with himself as he double fault but 30-15 Murray, with Groth sending a high lob out from deep.

    That isn't pretty from Murray, who gets his feet all wrong and nets a forehand. 30-30.

    Game point though and Groth nets. The end is nigh.

  10. Post update

    Groth 0-6 4-6 1-3 Murray*

    A rare moment for Sam Groth.

    He holds his serve to love.

    Big cheers. All a bit too late though surely?

    *Groth 0-6 4-6 0 3-0 Murray

    Sam Groth

    Sam Groth just wants to be out of here.

    Andy Murray might not take long to finish this off, although Groth shows some defiance as he swipes a backhand away from the net.

    Murray wins the game to 30.

  13. Murray breaks!

    Groth 0-6 4-6 0-2 Murray*

    Stunning. Groth sends down a big first serve, Murray reaches and sends a winner past. Another service return winner from Murray, this time on the back hand.

    Groth comes forward on another first serve but volleys out. Break point.

    He's done it - again. He has Groth on string. The Australian's drop volley is met by Murray, who lobs Groth. He makes it but his shot from between his legs is volleyed away into an empty court.

  14. Post update

    *Groth 0-6 4-6 0-1

    This is going swimmingly for Andy Murray.

    Another inch-perfect forehand lob gives him 30-0 in the opening game of the second set.

    An ace wins the game to 15.

  16. Game and second set

    Groth 0-6 4-6 Murray*

    The perfect start. A backhand service return winner down the line from Murray.

    An ace cancels that out. 15-15. Double fault though and a sniff of a break.

    More than a sniff. Two set points as Murray sends a brilliant backhand winner down the line after a good pickup volley from Groth.

    The first is saved as Murray returns into the net but not the second. Murray jigs in celebration as Groth volleys wide.

    *Groth 0-6 4-5 Murray

    Andy Murray

    Sam Groth is having a row with the ball boy after dumping a backhand into the net. Too slow with the towel apparently.

    Great defence from Murray, who reacts to a Groth overhead with a delicate passing shot from mid court. Good hands.

    An ace and Murray holds to love.

    Groth serving to stay in the second set.

  18. Post update

    Groth 0-6 4-4 Murray*

    Have we got a match on our hands?

    Murray returns long and out and Groth is 30-0 up with a wicked cross court forehand winner. He is finding the sweet spot at last.

    A double fault make it 30-15 but game point as he serves and volleys. An ace finishes the game off for Groth.

    He looks a different player.

  19. Groth breaks!

    *Groth 0-6 3-4 Murray

    Sam Groth keeps coming forward and he keeps getting passed. Murray sends a backhand past the Australian at the net from mid court.

    That is better from Groth though as booming forehand clips the line to level at 15-15 and he follows that up with a cross court winner, after reacting quickly to Murray's drop shot. 15-30.

    Murray levels at 30-30 but break point Groth - his first - as, after exchanging shots at the baseline, Murray nets.

    He's done it. Murray sends a forehand long and Groth has broken.

  20. Post update

    Groth 0-6 2-4 Murray*

    Another Sam Groth game - and that was easy.

    The Australian throws down an ace, a couple of big first serves and is this a sign he is finally getting something going?

    He wins to 15 as Murray nets on the run after Groth's forehand down the line.
