MASON, Ohio (AP) Wimbledon-champion Andy Murray opened pursuit of his third Western & Southern Open championship Wednesday with a 6-2, 6-3 win over Mikhail Youzhny.

The second-seeded Murray, who beat Novak Djokovic in the 2008 and 2011 finals and in the Wimbledon final in July, needed 1 hour and 9 minutes to improve to 4-0 in his career against the 25th-ranked Youzhny.

Murray, who is also the defending U.S. Open champion, was coming off a third-round loss last week in Montreal, his first action since becoming the first British male to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936.
