US Open LIVE: Latest updates as Andy Murray meets Emilio Nava in second round

Medvedev, Murray cross in the second round. Halep stunned by qualifier Snigur

Andy Murray is at the US Open today as he takes on Emilio Nava in the second round at Arthur Ashe Stadium. The former champion is aiming to reach the third round of a Grand Slam for the second time since 2018.

The 2012 US Open winner got off to a great start in New York thanks to a straight-set win over Francisco Cerundolo on Monday, which was his first straight-set win at a Grand Slam since 2017. Now he meets 20-year-old American Nava, who is ranked No. 200 by career worldwide.

The 35-year-old Briton was plagued by muscle cramps that came in the final Grand Slams of the season but his performance against 24th seeded Cerundolo of the tournament and the straight-set win he scored will also boost his chances and confidence .

Victory for Murray will also boost British interest in the tournament after Emma Raducanu failed to defend her title by losing to France’s Alizé Cornet 3-6, 6-3 in the first round of the women’s competition.

Emma Raducanu falls at the first hurdle while defending her title at the US Open

Emma Raducanu’s US Open title defense ended at the first hurdle with a straight-set loss to veteran France’s Alize Cornet.

It was a far cry from what happened 12 months ago when the 19-year-old made too many mistakes and suffered a 6-3-6-3 loss on a windy night in New York.

Raducanu will drop to around 80 in the rankings but while she certainly wanted to go further, she might be relieved that moment is over and she can try to lay firmer foundations for her tennis career.

Andy Murray practiced with Emilio Nava

A decade after his US Open win at Flushing Meadows, Andy Murray will target the US Open’s last 32 for the first time since 2016 when he takes on American wild card Emilio Nava in the second round.

“I actually batted with him a few days ago so it was good to get on court with him,” revealed the three-time Major winner.

“Because otherwise I saw a bit of his match [defeating John Millman in five sets]but actually being on the court with someone and feeling their punches is helpful when you don’t know much about them.”
