Andy Murray put on another impressive performance on clay Thursday, defeating Gilles Simon 6-4, 6-2 to reach the quarterfinals of the Madid Open.

The second-seeded Murray broke Simon's serve in the final game of the first set and twice in the second to stay on track to defend his title.

It was a rematch of the 2008 final in Madrid, when Murray won his first title at the tournament.

Murray will next face either Joao Sousa of Portugal or Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic.
