MURRAY 6-2 6-3 6-2 - GAME, SET & MATCH - Murray wraps up the match at the second attempt when Berrer sends a forehand wide down the line. The Scot is through to the fourth round but will he recover in time for that match on Monday?

- 

MURRAY 6-2 6-3 5-2 - Berrer holds with a great first serve across court that Murray can only return into the net at full stretch. That's a solid hold for the German from 30-30 but Murray will have the chance after the change of ends to serve out the match

- 

MURRAY 6-2 6-3 5-1 - Murray produces another two aces, the latter of which is down the centre of the court to seal the game. And that leaves Berrer serving to stay in the set after the change of ends

- 

MURRAY 6-2 6-3 4-1 - Berrer is trying to gee himself up as he holds with a forehand winner to get off the mark in this third set.

- 

MURRAY 6-2 6-3 4-0 - Murray holds with another huge serve that Berrer can only return into the net and he is now just two games away from the fourth round

-

MURRAY 6-2 6-3 3-0 - BREAK - An absolutely outrageous forehand return of serve winner from Murray, the Scot belting a ball down the line, grabs the double break at the first attempt.

- 

MURRAY 6-2 6-3 2-0 - Murray races through a service hold to consolidate the break, firing down an ace in the process.

-

MURRAY 6-2 6-3 1-0 - BREAK - Ouch! Berrer seems to be thinking too much about Murray's movement and not actually managing to get the Scot to move. And Berrer hits a relatively straightforward forehand long to hand Murray an opening break in this third set. This is playing into Murray's hands perfectly as he just wants to get this done as soon as possible and get off court to rest that ankle

-

MURRAY 6-2 6-3 - SET - Murray earns himself two set points after a series of huge first serves, again hitting the ball as hard as possible seems to be the main tactic. But he only needs the one as he fires a serve over the net that Berrer can only return long

- 

MURRAY 6-2 5-3 - Berrer holds without too much trouble, Murray continuing to limp around the baseline after having much attention to his ankle during the change of ends. The Scot will have the chance to serve for this second set next though

- 

MURRAY 6-2 5-2 - Huge hitting from Murray as he holds with some blistering forehands that Berrer can eventually only hit long off, and the Scot holds to consolidate the break this time around. Berrer will have to serve to stay in the set after the change of ends

-

MURRAY 6-2 4-2 - BREAK - Murray is absolutely belting the ball any time it comes to him and going for winners off everything he can. And it seems to be working as he breaks to extend his lead once again, when Berrer hits into the net. The trouble for Murray is when Berrer makes him move

-

MURRAY 6-1 3-2 - BREAK - Murray is broken to love when Berrer makes him run on every point, the last of which he goes for a backhand across court back behind the hobbling Scot

-

MURRAY 6-1 3-1 - BREAK - The Scot does break, working his way up to the net and putting up a high backhand down the line that Berrer can only return wide across court. No real signs of the ankle being too bad there but Murray is grimacing an walking a gingerly between points

-

Murray has had his ankle heavily strapped and is going to try and continue ... the game resumes at break point Murray

-

Murray shoots a very worried look up to his camp before slinging his racquet away and slumping down into his chair. His body language suggests this is not good.

-

A cross court smash winner earns Murray another three break points. The first goes begging with a forehand return into the net from the Scot, while Berrer saves the second racing up to a shorter ball and firing a vicious backhand at the feet of Murray. And Murray hits a backhand into the net to squander the third. Murray races up to the net on the next point before collapsing on the court clearly in a lot of pain after twisting his ankle. The Scot has immediately called for the trainer

- 

MURRAY 6-2 2-1 - Murray eases through a pretty straight forward service hold to sling all the pressure back over the net at Berrer. Can he break this time?

- 

MURRAY 6-2 1-1 - Berrer comes through a battling service hold that takes 19 minutes! Murray holds a number of break points in the course of the game but cannot take advantage of any of them as Berrer works him around the court. And eventually the German goes on to hold with a backhand winner off a shorter ball

- 

MURRAY 6-2 1-0 - A solid enough first service hold for Murray to open his second set account. He is obviously trying to pump himself up as well as he endulges in a yell of "come on" after an ace down the centre of the T at 30-30

-

MURRAY 6-2 - SET - A very tight set from Murray in the end, the Scot seems firmly in control as he breaks to seal the set with 11 winners and eight unforced errors

- 

MURRAY 5-2 - Tough luck for Berrer, who pulls out shot after brilliant shot - including a sublime dropshot - to earn a string of break opportunities off Murray's serve. The crowd get right behind the underdog, but Murray's superior movement eventually sees him through the danger.

- 

4-1 MURRAY - The Scot holds serve again as Berrer continually misses his shots under minimal pressure

- 

MURRAY 3-1 - Berrer wins his first game of the match, finding the rhythm on his serve in that one to breeze through with no trouble.

- 

MURRAY 3-0 - The Scot never looks in trouble in his second service game, whistling through it in barely more than a minute with some devastating serving.

- 

MURRAY 1-0 - The Scot looks to be cruising through the opening service game that is played with all the intensity of a warm up, but a massive backhand winner fires up Berrer and he pushes Murray to deuce. The fourth seed eventually hangs on as a Berrer forehand pings off his racquet frame, but not a smooth start.

-

MURRAY 0-0 - The match gets under way, and it's the Scot to serve first.

- 

Murray and German veteran Berrer have never played each other before, but the Scot should be too much for the world number 95 - who has never been this far in a Grand Slam before.

- 

Sorana Cirstea has been blown away in little more than an hour on Xourt Suzanne Lenglen, meaning that Andy Murray and Michael Berrer will be out in a few minutes' time.
