Melbourne: Andy Murray said he would draw on the experience of his breakthrough US Open win in the later stages of big tournaments after a trouble-free start to his Australian Open campaign Tuesday.

In warming on-court temperatures on Rod Laver Arena, the third seed clinically disposed of Dutchman Robin Haase, 6-3, 6-1, 6-3 to progress safely to the second round.

Much has changed in Murray's life since his career-transforming victory over world number one Novak Djokovic in last year's US Open final, and he is among the favourites at the year's opening major tournament.
