The 16th-ranked Murray broke Mirnyi twice in each set to win in 52 minutes.
''Andy has surpassed me in all aspects today,'' Mirnyi said. ''He has neutralized my attacking game with passing shots and there were no doubts about the winner of the match.''
After trading breaks early in the first set, Ancic made a decisive break in the ninth game of the first set. He then won four consecutive games in the second set.
Ancic, who missed most of the season after injuring his shoulder in February, is returning to form. He's reached the quarterfinals in Stockholm and Madrid in the last two weeks.
