Overview

Murray sealed a place in the second round of the fourth Grand Slam of the year after defeating Robin Haase in the earlier round of the competition. The 27-year-old was looking for a straight set victory, but was unsuccessful in doing so.

The Scot had seen two out of the four sets being decided on a tiebreaker. However, Murray won the match in four sets as the final score was 6-3, 7-6, 1-6, 7-5. Murray would be hoping to avoid such encounters in the second round clash at the Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Meanwhile, Bachinger progressed to the second round of this year's US Open after registering a victory over Radek Stepanek. The German professional tennis player won the tie comfortably in straight sets.

Bachinger defeated the 35-year-old Czech tennis star 6-3, 6-2, 6-2. He would be hoping for a similar result when he will take on Murray in the main court of the US Open for the second round clash.
