LONDON - 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 over another compatriot, Aljaz Bedene on Thursday.

Murray will face British wildcard Kyle Edmund for a place in the semi-finals after brushing aside Bedene 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.

It was the first time Murray had faced a British opponent at Tour level on home soil and the first time anywhere since he lost to Henman in Bangkok in 2006. Murray had battled hard to subdue Nicolas Mahut in two tie-breaks in the first round and initially he looked out of sync against Slovenia-born Bedene.

Elsewhere in the second round, Luxembourg's Gilles Muller saved 10 match points to claim a surprise 3-6, 7-6 (18/16), 7-6 (9/7) win over American seventh seed John Isner. Muller, who also reached the Queen's quarter-finals last year, will face Australia's Bernard Tomic or Spain's Fernando Verdasco for a place in the last four.

Canadian third seed Milos Raonic advanced to the last eight for the second successive year with a 7-5, 7-6 (8/6) victory against Czech Jiri Vesely. World number nine Raonic, working with new coach John McEnroe for the first time this week, faces Spanish sixth seed Roberto Bautista Agut or American Donald Young.
