Murray storms into Aussie open

Andy Murray

Andy Murray has stormed through his first round match at the Australian Open against Kevin Anderson.

Murray put on a convincing performance as he beat the South African in straight sets, winning 6-1 6-1 6-2.

There's a huge gap between them - Murray is one of the best players in the world, while Anderson is only ranked at 147.

The Scot hardly put a foot wrong in the match, finishing off his opponent in just an hour and 40 minutes.

The roof had to be closed because it was raining.

"It was a little bit weird playing under the roof here but I enjoyed it." Murray said afterwards.

"It was a good atmosphere."
