Andy Murray continued in promising form at the Battle of the Brits, beating Cameron Norrie in straight sets.

Before the tournament in London, the 33-year-old had not played since withdrawing from a Cologne event in October because of a pelvic problem.

The all-British event is taking place in Roehampton.

Norrie started slowly and Murray took advantage to seal the first set, before Norrie fought back to take the second to a tie-break.

The British number three had a set point at 6-5 but Murray saved it and sealed victory as his lob landed perfectly on the baseline.

Evans bounced back from his defeat to Murray, beating beating Liam Broady 6-0 6-2, while Jack Draper followed up Monday’s victory over Norrie with a 6-4 6-1 success against Jay Clarke.

There were also wins for Anton Matusevich, Katy Dunne, Francesca Jones and Eden Silva.

The Battle of the Brits was organised by the Lawn Tennis Association to help British players prepare for the 2021 season with competitive matches after their schedules had been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
