    Brisbane - Murray survives, Dimitrov ousts Raonic World No. 3 Andy Murray came through a difficult opening match Thursday evening, holding on to beat Australia's John Millman in three sets. Grigor Dimitrov is also through to the quarterfinal after downing 2nd seed Milos Raonic.

    (1) Andy Murray def. (Q) John Millman 6-1, 5-7, 6-3

    Top seed Andy Murray won his first match of the season after holding on to upend qualifier John Millman in three sets. The 25-year-old Scot converted five of 11 break points through two hours and six minutes of play.

    "I wasn't too disappointed with the way I played tonight either, so it was a good first match for me," Murray explained. "For a first match of the year, that was a perfect match in many ways to go through some tough moments, a lot of long rallies, close games, and important points."

    The defending champion is scheduled to face Uzbekistan's Denis Istomin for a place in the semifinals. Istomin dismissed former world No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt in round two, 7-5, 7-5.

    Grigor Dimitrov def. (2) Milos Raonic 6-3, 6-4

    Grigor Dimitrov is through to the final eight by virtue of his straight-sets ousting of 2nd seed Milos Raonic. The 21-year-old struck 10 aces en route to a 6-3, 6-4 victory in just 62 minutes. Dimitrov completed the second-round effort with 26 of 26 first-service points won.

    He will take on 7th seed Jurgen Melzer in the next round. The veteran defeated Belgium's David Goffin in straight sets, 6-4, 7-6(4).
