Andy Murray enters the 2012 Australian Open with the same goal he has always had: winning his first Grand Slam title. After a first-round victory over Ryan Harrison, Murray's quest to do so Down Under is off to a good start.
Harrison, one of a few young American players expected to make up part of the next generation of men's tennis, did win the first set off Murray. But Murray cruised in his final three, winning 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 in Hisense Arena.
Murray, who has fought to join Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer in the upper echelon of men's tennis, has a new coach, Ivan Lendl, for 2012. And he is coming off a 2011 season that saw him make the semifinals of every Grand Slam and fall to Djokovic in the final of the 2011 Australian Open.
