Brit number one Andy Murray has claimed he is satisfied with his opening round win over Robin Haase in the Australian Open.

Murray said he did a pretty good job against a potentially tricky first assignment, Haase during his 6-3, 6-1, 6-3 victory, the Telegraph reports.

It was as good a first-round performance as Murray has delivered in recent years and he was pleased with how he coped in the oppressive heat on Rod Laver Arena, the paper said.

Murray said the conditions during the match were much different to what they were like in the last four to five days, adding the court was playing different and much livelier.

The world number three said he was happy to dominate the game and was particularly pleased with not giving Haase any free points.

It was Murray's first grand slam match since he claimed his maiden major at the US Open last year but he claimed he was still nervous beforehand, adding few nerves during a game is crucial as it shows you are involved in the game.

Murray said he was happy with the start and will try to make least unforced errors during the rest of tournament. (ANI)
