Grosjean retirement puts Murray into third round at Queen's

Britain's Andy Murray advanced to the third round of the Wimbledon tuneup tournament at Queen's in just 14 minutes on Tuesday when Frenchman Sebastien Grosjean retired with a left leg injury after dropping the first two games.
Grosjean, a two-time finalist here, held off two break points in the opening game before double-faulting on the third.
He got treatment from the trainer but after Murray held for 2-0 with three aces, the Frenchman quit the match.
In first-round matches, Italy's Simone Bolelli also advanced easily when Canadian Frank Dancevic retired at 2-2 in the opening set and Xavier Malisse of Belgium humbled British wild card entry Dan Evans 6-1, 6-1.
American John Isner beat Kevin Anderson of South Africa 7-6 (5), 6-4.
