Game, Set, Match:
Murray def. Querrey 6-4, 6-2, 6-4.
The man who defeated Djokovic at Wimbledon last year proved no challenge for the Scotsman, who sailed through to the Round of 16 in a straight-set victory.
The number one seed continues to win, and a juicy matchup could be in store for the quarterfinals where he could face either Nishikori or Federer.
The Scotsman will take on Mischa Zverev in the next round, an unseeded player who Murray should dispatch relatively easily. This will be the fourth matchup between the two, Murray taking the last three.
Should he win, he could possibly play one of Nishikori or Federer in what should be quite an entertaining quartefinal.
