Murray overcame a sluggish start to win 6-3 6-2 in one hour and 25 minutes to book his place in the third round.
The fourth seed was broken twice in succession in the opening set as the first four games all went against the serve, but eventually gained control of the match to continue his impressive season so far.
“I’m very happy with it,” Murray told Sky Sports 1 when asked about his performance.
“The start was tough, he played a few good shots and broke me a couple of times, but I’m happy with the way I moved.
“I was getting good shape on my shots and didn’t make too many mistakes. I could have served a little better but apart from that I’m very happy.”
Murray confirmed his status as the form player of 2009 by beating Novak Djokovic in the final of the Miami Masters earlier this month to clinch his third title of the season and the biggest of his career so far.
