As it stated in World number one Andy Murray coasted to the third round of the Dubai Duty Free Championships with a swift victory over Guillermo Garcia-Lopez.
Should Murray win that, a first meeting with Australian Open champion Roger Federer since 2015 is on the cards.
Murray played himself into form during his opening win over Malek Jaziri – his first singles match for five weeks.
The world number one finished the match, which lasted just an hour and 12 minutes, with a run of eight successive games.
Garcia-Lopez won fewer than half the points on his own serve and his only break point came in the opening game, which Murray saved with a confident backhand winner.
