Andy Murray marked the 10th anniversary of his first Grand Slam win with an impressive US Open straight set victory over Francisco Cerundolo of Argentina on Monday. The 35-year-old Murray beat the 24th seed 7-5, 6-3, 6-3, with no sign of the recent cramps that have hampered his difficult summer. Murray said after his first consecutive set win at the Slams since Wimbledon in 2017. “It feels like five sets.
Murray won his first Grand Slam title at the US Open in 2012, ending the British’s 76-year wait for a men’s champion at the majors.
“It seems like a long time since I’ve won here. A lot has happened in my career since then but it was a huge moment for me.”
Now ranked 51, Murray will face Australia’s John Millman or US representative Emilio Nava for a spot out of the final 32.
