Murray in the third round for the first time in six years


Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray is through to the third round of the US Open for the first time since 2016.

The two-time tennis Olympic champion from Scotland beat Emilio Nava from the USA 5: 7, 6: 3, 6: 1, 6: 0 on Wednesday and now meets former Wimbledon finalist Matteo Berrettini from Italy, the Hugo Defeated Grenier of France 2-6, 6-1, 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (9-7).

Murray won the US Open in 2012 and is making his 16th appearance at the tournament. Since 2017, the charismatic pro, who received a partial hip replacement three years ago, has not progressed past the third round at a major. “I’m moving better than I’ve been in a long time,” said Murray, in the ATP ranking he has climbed back to 51st place: “Hopefully I can get far.”

Wimbledon finalist Nick Kyrgios is also still in the running. The Australian prevailed 7: 6 (7: 3), 6: 4, 4: 6, 6: 4 against Benjamin Bonzi from France and now has to deal with JJ Wolf from the USA.

Defending champion Daniil Medvedev followed with a safe 6:2, 7:5, 6:3 against Frenchman Arthur Rinderknech. This means that the Russian now has a highly interesting game against Wu Yibing, who continues to make history.

With his 6: 7 (3: 7), 7: 6 (7: 4), 4: 6, 6: 4, 6: 4 win against the Portuguese Nuno Borges, the 22-year-old is the first Chinese player since the introduction of professional tennis reached the third round at a Grand Slam in 1968.
