Andy Murray eased into the quarterfinals at the Dubai Championships with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Marco Chiudinelli of Switzerland on Wednesday.

Murray had struggled against German qualifier Michael Berrer in his opening win, but looked more like the player that reached the Australian Open semifinals. He broke the 185th-ranked Chiudinelli to go up 3-1 in the first set and moved him around the court with ease. He ended the first set with an ace.

The second set was closer as both players held serve for the first eight games. But then Murray broke Chiudinelli to go up 5-4 and won the match with his serve.

Murray next plays the winner of the match between fifth-seeded Tomas Berdych and Lukas Lacko.
