World number two Andy Murray eased past Lukas Rosol in the opening match of his US Open campaign on 31 August to become the fifth player from Great Britain to reach the second round at Flushing Meadows.
The Scot beat Rosol 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 in a game where he did not face a break point, with Murray hitting 11 aces while making just 17 unforced errors. At no point did the 29-year-old look in trouble, considering he has had a hectic time on the court over the past two months. Murray would be happy with his start, continuing the form which helped him win the Wimbledon and Olympic title this summer.
"I served very well. I don't think I had any break points against me, which was good. I had good variation on the second serve as well. It was a tough start to the match and once I got the break, I started to relax and play well," Murray said, as quoted by BBC.
He will next play Spain's Marcel Granollers for a place in the round of 32.
Meanwhile, in the women's singles, Naomi Broady fought back to knock out fellow countryman Laura Robson. Robson who was the favourite to win, came into this clash on the back of an eight-match winning streak, but it was Broady who showed more grit, coming from behind to eventually win 6-7, 6-3, 6-4.
The 26-year-old Broady, who recently made it to the top 100 rankings, served extremely well under pressure, saving eight of nine break points and firing down 16 aces. This was only her second victory at a major tournament, with the first one coming at Wimbledon two years ago.
Broady will now face fourth seed Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland in the second round.
