NEW YORK - Britain's Andy Murray won the first 14 points and rolled to a 6-1 6-4 6-2 victory on Sunday over Feliciano Lopez of Spain in the third round of the US Open.

The fourth-seeded Murray, a three-time grand slam finalist gunning for his first major title, was never broken as he took less than two hours to improve his record against the Spaniard to 6-0.

After escaping from two sets down in a five-set victory over Dutchman Robin Haase in the second round, Murray made quick work of 25th seed Lopez with a cleanly executed game plan as he made just 16 unforced errors in the match.

In the round of 16, Murray meets 22-year-old American wildcard Donald Young, who beat the Briton this year at Indian Wells.
