Andy Murray will finally open his U.S. Open campaign on Wednesday, with the Briton riding high after his win at the Cincinnati Masters.

The fourth seed has had to wait until Day Three to play his opening match, after New York was shut down by Hurricane Irene over the weekend.

His first-round opponent at the Arthur Ashe Stadium will be India's Somdev Devverman.

"I have seen him play a few match matches and he's solid," Murray told reporters.

"He kind of does everything pretty well. He has a very good attitude, very positive, so he's gonna be solid. He's not going to give me anything, so I need to play well."
