(Tennis) Murray pulls through
(01-14 16:23)

Wimbledon champion Andy Murray showed little evidence of a three-month layoff due to a back injury to beat Go Soeda of Japan 6-1, 6-1, 6-3 in a first-round match at the Australian Open.
He did not face a break point on his serve, and took advantage of six of his 13 break-point opportunities.
No 4-ranked Murray has only played two official matches since minor back surgery in September. He has reached three finals at Melbourne Park, and a title here would add to his 2012 US Open title and Wimbledon last year.—AP
