Andy Murray impressively beat Matteo Berrettini 7-6 (7-2) 7-6 (9-7) at the China Open to set up a second round tie against fellow Briton Cameron Norrie.

Murray, 32, faced a tough test against world number 13 Berrettini, who reached last month’s US Open semi-finals.

The Scot came back from a break down in each set for his biggest singles win since returning from hip surgery in January.

“It was a tight match and I thought I did pretty well,” said Murray.

“Hopefully, I can have a good run here. That was a good start for me.
