World No.1, Andy Murray beat Sam Querrey in straight sets to reach the last 16 of the Australian Open 2017. And the match saw Murray putting on a show for his fans.
The 6-4 6-2 6-4 win for Murray saw him dominate Querrey and there were also times when he displayed some marvellous skills on court. He will now face Mischa Zverev in the next round.
The above video shows how Murray covered the court while running from one end to the other to win a point.
Considering this form and Novak Djokovic’s shock early exit, could this be the year Murray finally wins in Melbourne?
The Australian Open 2017 fever is on. And the battle to get to the next round has intensified.

An interesting revelation about Andrey Rublev, who lost to Andy Murray in the Aus Open second round, prompted quite the response from the player the Russian defeated in the opening round.
