Andy Murray is through to the second round in Stuttgart

Andy Murray continued his Wimbledon preparations with a straight-sets win over Australia’s Christopher O’Connell in the first round of the BOSS Open in Stuttgart.

The 35-year-old came through 6-4 6-3 in an hour and 35 minutes against the world No 116.

Murray chalked up four matches on grass at last week’s ATP Challenger event in Surbiton as he reached the semi-finals before seeing his run ended by Denis Kudla.

Murray could now face Kudla in the second round in Stuttgart – if the American comes through his clash with seventh seed Alexander Bublik of Kazakhstan.

Murray is also scheduled to play next week’s event at Queen’s Club, a tournament he has previously won on five occasions (2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016) before Wimbledon starts on June 27.
