British fourth seed Andy Murray defeated Spain's Feliciano Lopez in straight sets to reach the fourth round at the Australian Open on Saturday.
Murray, a three-time finalist in Melbourne, won 7-6 (7/2), 6-4, 6-2 in two hours 15 minutes on Hisense Arena.
It continued Murray's dominance of the left-hander as he stretched his winning sequence to 8-0 over Lopez in their matches.
The Scot, who has lost twice to Novak Djokovic and once to Roger Federer in Australian finals, will now face French lucky loser Stephane Robert in the round of 16.
