Tennis: Murray advances to Miami quarter-finals

British second seed Andy Murray advanced to the quarter-finals of the ATP Miami Masters Series hardcourt tournament on Tuesday by defeating Italy's 16th-seeded Andreas Seppi, 6-2, 6-4.

The Scotsman needed only 86 minutes to book a date in the last eight against the winner of a later match between French sixth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Croatian ninth seed Marin Cilic.

Murray, the 2009 Miami champion, lost to world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in last year's final.
