Top-seeded Andy Murray shifted up a gear in a 6-2,6-2 win over Marcos Baghdatis on Friday to advance to the semifinals at the Brisbane International,his only tuneup tournament for the Australian Open.

The No 4-ranked Murray dropped the opening sets in his first two rounds here as he overcame aches and pains from the offseason,but had no serious difficulty dispatching doubles partner Baghdatis in just over an hour.

Murray,who has lost the last two Australian Open finals and has recently hired Ivan Lendl to help him break his Grand Slam title drought,will next play the winner of Friday’s quarterfinal between Australian Bernard Tomic and Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan.
