    Murray takes care of Dimitrov in Miami third round Andy Murray sprints past Grigor Dimitrov in straight sets on Monday in Miami. Murray will go up against Andreas Seppi for a place in the quarterfinals.

    Andy Murray scored a 7-6(3), 6-3 victory over Grigor Dimitrov in the third round of the Sony Open on Monday afternoon. Murray recovered from multiple deficits in the first set to advance after one hour and 54 minutes.

    Dimitrov, who lost to Murray in the Brisbane final earlier this season, got off to a fast start. The 21-year-old Bulgarian missed one break opportunity at 1-0 in the first set, but he soon got over the hump for a 3-1 advantage. That started a stretch of three straight breaks, with Dimitrov just barely managing to keep a lead. At 5-3, however, he squandered two set points before double-faulting three times at 5-4 and failing to close out the opener.

    The ensuing tiebreaker saw Dimitrov pull ahead 2-1 with a mini-break, but he gave it back on the next point. Murray ended up winning five consecutive points starting at 2-3 to storm past Dimitrov.

    From there it was all Murray, who took complete control with a break in the second game of set two. The third-ranked Scot saved one break point at 2-0 and survived two deuces at 5-3 to get the job done.

    Next up for Murray is Andreas Seppi, a three-set winner over Thomaz Bellucci.
