Andy Murray believes he is starting to discover his best form as he prepares to continue his Wimbledon title assault this weekend.
The British No 1 breezed into the third round with a second successive straight-sets victory over Yen-Hsun Lu on Thursday.
With Ivan Lendl, the man who helped mastermind his only Wimbledon triumph in 2013, back in his corner and a simple route so far, Murray is looking in great shape.
His journey resumes tomorrow when he faces Australian John Millman, with Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic safely confined to the other side of the draw.
Murray beat Millman in 2013 at Brisbane and appears to be in a good place mentally and physically this year as he looks to regain the crown.
Murray said: “I've started well here quite a few times over the years. I mean, I don't know if this is the best one or not.
“But today was, for sure, a good match, an improvement from the first round, against a guy who has won a lot of matches on the grass recently.
“I was just happy that I improved as the match went on. Hopefully I start the next match like I finished this one. Yeah, keep it going.”
Rain badly affected play at Wimbledon on Friday and the poor weather has plagued the tournament in the first week.
Gilles Simon has come out and complained about wet courts causing havoc and admitted his frustration at a lack of consultation with tour pros on the issue.
Murray is fortunate enough to play his matches on Centre Court, with the luxury of a roof, however the Brit shares the concerns of those on the outside courts.
He added: “Yeah, I spoke a little bit about that after Novak and me played in Rome, and also at the French Open, as well.
“What you don't want to have happen is for a player to really hurt themselves.
“If players are saying it's too wet, the court is a little bit too slippy, then someone really hurts themselves, that's when it's really, really tough on the player, because who is going to take responsibility for that?
“The player then can't earn a living for the next few months, depending on what the injury is. I think that's where, you know, I'd say in general, players are pretty fair with that.
“They don't tend to complain about courts being slippy when they're not. I think just sometimes it may appear selfish. But if the player gets hurt, they're the ones that get screwed in the end.
“I think there just needs to be maybe a little bit of balance and common sense sometimes.
"On a grass court, when it's raining, it becomes dangerous very quickly.”
