MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - In his first Grand Slam match as a major winner, third-ranked Andy Murray opened his Australian Open campaign with a 6-3, 6-1, 6-3 win over Robin Haase of the Netherlands on Tuesday.

Asked what it felt like to play after his triumph at the U.S. Open, where he became the first British man since 1936 to win a major title, Murray said: "I can try and focus on the second part of my career now.''
