Barcelona Open: Murray Through To Third Round Without Hitting Ball

Andy Murray is through to the third round of the Barcelona Open after Australia’s Bernard Tomic withdrew before the match with an injured back.

Murray, 29, will play the winner between Spanish pair Albert Montanes and Feliciano Lopez in the last 16.

The world number one accepted a late wildcard for Barcelona after his third-round defeat by Spaniard Albert Ramos-Vinolas in Monte Carlo on Thursday.

Fellow Briton Dan Evans faces Austria’s Dominic Thiem in the third round.

Both Evans and Murray will play their matches on Thursday.

Elsewhere, Britain’s Aljaz Bedene beat the Netherlands’ world number 46 Robin Haase 6-4 6-4 in the second round of the Hungarian Open in Budapest.

It was the 14th win in a row for Bedene, ranked 68th in the world, who will play either Ivo Karlovic or Damir Dzumhur in the next round.
