Matthias Bachinger v Andy Murray Live
British tennis sensation Andy Murray will be up against wildcard entrant from Germany, Matthias Bachinger for the second round of the US Open on Thursday, August 28.
While Andy Murray is the world number 9 according to the ATP rankings, his opponent for the second round is ranked at 235 in the world.
Andy Murray has had a quiet year so far. He did not make much progress at Wimbledon this year having been knocked out of the reckoning by Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov. He was far from impressive at the French Open as well and has suffered a couple of third round exits at the hands of Jo WIlfried Tsonga (Toronto) and Roger Federer (Cincinnati) in the run up to the tournament.
The Brit beat Robin Haase of the Netherlands in four sets in the opening round of the ongoing tournament and looked ill at ease with his game at certain points of the match. He will be looking to play with more conviction and confidence when he walks out at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Thursday.
Matthias Bachinger has surprised a few people with his first round victory over Radek Stepanek in straight sets. The German never allowed Stepanek to make a comeback in a match which the former won 6-3, 6-2, 6-2. Although his preparation to the tournament has hardly been ideal, Matthias Bachinger could spring a surprise on his day. This should be an interesting fixture.
