Andy Murray clinched his place in the quarter-finals of the Western & Southern Open with a 6-2 6-2 victory over Julien Benneteau. The world No 2 required only an hour and 10 minutes to defeat the Frenchman at the Lindner Family Tennis Center. Murray breezed through the opening set as three aces and a 75 per cent success rate on his return of serve put his 31-year-old opponent under the cosh. Benneteau did show flashes of inspiration as the second set got under way but the Scotsman was largely wise to his range of forehand shots and steadily ground down the Frenchman's resolve. Murray's reward is a last-eight meeting with Tommy Robredo or fifth seed Tomas Berdych as he strived to repeat his Cincinnati success from 2011.
