2005 Jun 08 - Murray shocks Dent

Andrew Murray delivered an stunning second round display to see off World No.30 Taylor Dent 6-3 6-3 in the Stella Artois Championships at Queen's Club.

The young Scot held his serve and nerve to break the American twice in the opening set and then once in the second set before serving out the second ATP win of his career.

After the match Andrew said:

"It was very tough because I had to keep concentration on my service games the whole way through because he's got one of the biggest serves, I think.

"If I had gotten behind in the sets, it's not so easy to break him.

So I had to concentrate really hard on my service games the whole way through, and I think I did that quite well.

So it looked like the result was maybe a bit easier than what it was."

In the next round he will be tested by a Grand Slam winner - Australian Open - Thomas Johansson of Sweden.

Greg Rusedski also reached the third round with a 6-1 6-7(3) 6-4 win over the Russian Dmitry Tursunov and will face Radek Stepanek in the quarter-finals.

After his match Greg said:

"I think it's just coming together. It's just getting comfortable.

I think I've played reasonably well the whole season apart from maybe the clay court season.

I never really got into that season, and historically I never have so it's not really unusual that time of year.

But I'm looking forward to the next match against Stepanek.

I'm excited. I won two matches back-to-back, and hopefully I can continue."

Jamie Delgado crashed in his second round match 6-4 6-1 to French wonderkid Richard Gasquet.
