Andrey Kuznetsov v Andy Murray Live
World number 9 Andy Murray of Great Britain will be up against Alex Kuznetsov of Russia in the third round of matches at the US Open. The match will be held at the Flushing Meadows in New York on Saturday, August 30.
Andy Murray won his first round match against Robin Haase of Netherlands in four sets after having lost the third set. Andy Murray looked competitive in that match and recovered from an abysmal performance in the third set to take the match 6-3, 7-6(6), 1-6, 7-5. In the second round, the Wimbledon 2013 Champion looked at ease as he took the match 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 against German opponent Matthias Bachinger.
The Russian has also had a decent run in the US Open so far with a first round win over American Bradley Klahn 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, 7-5 followed by a thrilling five setter win against Spaniard Fernando Verdasco. Alex Kuznetsov looked extremely determined as he went on to take the match 6-3, 4-6, 4-6, 7-5, 6-3 after having lost the second and third set.
Andy Murray has not been in great form this year. He has not made it past the second round in any of the grand slams this year which is why his ranking has also suffered. The Brit will be hoping that he can showcase his talents at the Flushing Meadows so that he can put a tough year behind him.
The upcoming match should be a great contest as both men are looking good on paper ahead of the match.
