MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) Andy Murray didn't let the parochial crowds in Margaret Court Arena bother him Wednesday as he beat Australian Marinko Matosevic 6-1, 6-3, 6-2 to advance to the third round of the Australian Open.

Matosevic's first-round opponent, Alexander Kudryavtsev, accused boisterous Australian fans of behaving like ''animals'' after losing in five sets to the Melbourne resident.

Murray, who is good friends with Matosevic, beat the Australian in the second round of last year's French Open and at this year's Hopman Cup, both times in straight sets.

After the match, Murray said with a laugh, ''It was a fun atmosphere to play today. Even if not everyone was supporting me.''
