The ease with which Murray wins his early-round matches at slams often depends on how well his serve is working. The answer against Broady was very well indeed. Murray's first-serve percentage dropped in the third set but still ended up at a very respectable 65. He only lost six of the 49 points on which he made his first serve and hit eight aces.

The biggest strength in Murray's game is his return and he gave Broady very few free points, missing just 14 returns in the whole match. Broady was unable to dominate on his first serve, winning only 60 per cent of points, and fewer than half when he missed his first delivery.

Murray did not serve and volley at all but judged his forays to the net very well, winning 18 of 19 points and hitting 15 of his 31 winners. Broady actually hit more winners from the baseline than Murray - nine to seven, including seven in the third set, when he competed with Murray extremely well.

Murray was determined to expend as little energy as possible following his early-round dramas at the French Open and took his chances very well, converting his first four break points. He let four slip away in the third set but saved the only two chances Broady created to ensure there were no late twists.
