Andy Murray
Murray is looking for the form that took him to last year's Wimbledon semi-finals

British number one Andy Murray enjoyed a straight-sets win over Russia's Mikhail Youzhny in an exhibition match ahead of Wimbledon.

The 23-year-old Scot won 6-4 6-3 at the BNP Paribas Tennis Classic on the grass courts at London's Hurlingham Club.

Murray was after some extra match practice having lost to Mardy Fish in the third round at Queen's last week.

The Briton will find out who he will meet at Wimbledon when the draw is made at 1000 BST on Friday.

In Thursday's other singles match at Hurlingham, Tomas Berdych beat 2002 Wimbledon champion Lleyton Hewitt 7-5 6-3.
