French Open 2011: Andy Murray Puts Away Frenchman Eric Prodon
Andy Murray made short work of the Frenchman 29-yer old Eric Prodon, 6-4, 6-1, 6-3. The Scot won in 104 minutes on Court Suzanne Lenglen against the qualifier, ranked world No. 124.
Clay has not been kind to Murray although the Scot professes a fondness for the the red dirt.
So far, Murray has never progressed beyond the quarterfinals in his forays into the draw at previous French Opens.
Certainly Murray hopes 2011 will be different. After the Scot's appearance in the Rome finals, Murray must feel some degree of confidence coming into Paris
Today, however, Murray committed a number of unforced errors in his first round match against the French qualifier.
Murray's opponent Prodon had won only one match win in his eleven-year career. Yet the Frenchman did manage to break the Murray serve at 3-1 in the third set before Murray pulled himself together to close out the match in straight sets.
Murray will next face qualifier Simone Bolelli in round two, hoping to improve upon his showing in today's opener.
