London, June 16: Andy Murray set up the first all-British Queen's Club quarter-final in the Open era as the defending champion cruised to a 6-3, 6-4 victory on Thursday.
Murray will face British wildcard Kyle Edmund for a place in the semi-finals after brushing aside Aljaz Bedene, another of his compatriots, in the second round of the Wimbledon warm-up event.
The last time two British players contested an ATP Tour quarter-final was in Adelaide in 2002 when Tim Henman defeated Greg Rusedski 6-4, 6-4.
Murray is bidding for a record fifth Queen's crown and the world number two took just 83 minutes to extend his fine career record in west London to 27-5 and book a sixth appearance in the Queen's last eight.
The 29-year-old Scot, who resumed his partnership with coach Ivan Lendl this week after a two-year separation, next takes on Davis Cup team-mate Edmund, who was given a walkover into the quarter-finals after his French opponent Paul-Henri Mathieu pulled out with a wrist problem.     ?AFP
