Murray eases to last 16 after injury scare


London: Andy Murray reprised his familiar role of being the last British singles player heading into Wimbledon’s second week but he needed a reboot to come through Saturday’s four-set tussle with Andreas Seppi in a tale of two timeouts.

For almost three sets of Murray’s 6-2 6-2 1-6 6-1 victory, the third seed was utterly dominant while his opponent looked forlorn, but the momentum of the encounter swung violently following two opportune visits to the court by the trainer.
