Andy Murray is through to the second round of the Australian Open after a straight-sets win over Robin Haase in Melbourne.

The British number one eased to a 6-3 6-1 6-3 victory in an impressive one hour and 37 minutes.

Murray will now face Joao Sousa of Portugal in the second round.

If the Scot wins the Australian Open he'll be the only male player to follow up a first Grand Slam title with another major win.

There was also good news for Laura Robson. The British number two raced past American Melanie Oudin to reach round two for the first time.
