Andy Murray picked up where he left off at the Rio Olympics with a 6-3, 6-2 defeat of Juan Monaco in the second round of the ATP-WTA Cincinnati Masters.

The top seed and world number two was back on the court just 72 hours after winning the singles gold medal at the Summer Games.

He next plays South African Kevin Anderson, who beat French 13th seed Richard Gasquet 6-2, 6-4.

"I've played a lot of tennis, the balls are also different here," Murray said. "It's a quick turnaround and not really much time to adjust from Rio."
