Andy Murray rushes into third round of US Open with straight sets

Andy Murray is in a hurry. The 25-year-old Scot became the first man to reach the third round of the US Open here last night when he recorded his second successive straight-sets victory of the tournament. Just as in his opening encounter against Alex Bogomolov, the world No 4 never looked in any danger. Having coasted to a 6-2, 6-1, 6-3 victory over Ivan Dodig, he now faces the winner of today’s all-Spanish meeting between Feliciano Lopez and Pablo Andujar.
