Andy Murray marched into the third round of the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells with a routine 6-1 6-3 win over Canadian Vasek Pospisil.

The Scot raced through the opening set, carving out five break points and taking three, before another two breaks of serve in the second earned him victory in one hour and 19 minutes.

His opponent, the world number 62, did not trouble the 27-year-old, making only 46 per cent of first serves.

Murray took full advantage to set up a meeting with Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber.

“I thought I did quite well,” the British number one said on Sky Sports 3. “He didn’t serve so well today.

“I thought I played quite solid. I was using my forehand well.”

Murray admitted the contrast in atmosphere from Great Britain’s Davis Cup tie against the United States in Glasgow last weekend took some getting used to.

“It’s a completely different vibe on the court,” he said. “It’s extremely different to what it was like in Davis Cup. I tried to give myself some positive energy – that helped a little bit, but it was tough.”

Murray, who earlier this week revealed he was set to add Jonas Bjorkman to his coaching team, said he would like the Davis Cup quarter-final with France in July to be held at Queen’s Club.
