Andy Murray is into his first quarter-final since returning from hip surgery after beating Cameron Norrie at the China Open

Andy Murray had to dig deep to secure a first quarter-final berth since his return from surgery as he saw off compatriot Cameron Norrie in a gruelling second-round encounter at the China Open.

The two-time Wimbledon champion, who underwent a procedure to resurface his hip joint earlier this year, came through 7-6 (8-6) 6-7 (4-7) 6-1 in Beijing in a match which lasted eight minutes short of three hours to demonstrate his continuing return to form.

Murray, who showed flashes of the touch which took him to the top of the world rankings, had to battle his way through fatigue a day after beating US Open semi-finalist Matteo Berrettini.
