Andy Murray wins on return from injury in Monte Carlo
The top seed will now face Spain's Albert Ramos-Vinolas in the third round.
Andy Murray marked his return from injury with a hard fought 7-5 7-5 victory over Gilles Muller to reach the third round of the Monte Carlo Masters.
It was the world number one's first game since March 12 after he was sidelined with an elbow injury that affected his serve.
Murray showed early signs of rust after three double faults in his first four points, before saving a set point and winning four games in a row.
The top seed secured the first set, with Luxembourg's Muller was warned for racket abuse.
Despite a break in the first game of the second set, Murray regained his consistency to see off Muller despite the below par performance.
Murray will now face Spanish 15th seed Albert Ramos-Vinolas in the third round as he looks to gain some much needed momentum ahead of the French Open, which begins in May.
