Tsitsipas bundles Murray Out of Flushing Meadows.
Written by crest887fm on August 31, 2021
Andy Murray produced his finest display in four injury-disrupted years but fell agonisingly short of beating Greek world number three Stefanos Tsitsipas in a thrilling start to the US Open.
The British former world number one played in a manner reminiscent of his best as he led by two sets to one.
But Tsitsipas fought back to win 2-6 7-6 (9-7) 3-6 6-3 6-4 in New York.
Dan Evans is the only Briton through after defeats for Heather Watson, Harriet Dart and Cameron Norrie.
Johanna Konta withdrew from her first-round match because of a thigh injury, meaning teenager Emma Raducanu and Katie Boulter,who play on Tuesday,are the nation’s last remaining hopes in the women’s singles.
