Murray reaches 3rd round of U.S. Open

ANDY MURRAY crushed Ivan Dodig of Croatia, 6-2 6-1 6-3, under the lights at Flushing Meadows to reach the third round of the U.S. Open.

Dodig can boast wins over Rafa Nadal and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga but he was blown away by Murray, who raised his game from a scratchy opening-round display under the watchful eye of coach Ivan Lendl.

“I thought I played well,” Murray said. “There were a lot of long rallies and he moves extremely well. I moved my feet very well tonight and I played well.”

The Scot broke in the third game of the match and never looked back as he clinched a meeting with the winner of the all-Spanish battle between 30th seed Feliciano Lopez and Pablo Andujar.

Murray will now have two days off before his next match on Saturday. Noli Cruz
