Andy Murray scores easy win, Del Potro cruises through
Fourth seed and former finalist Andy Murray scored a comprehensive victory over Indian Ace Somdev Devvarman to join 2009 champion Juan Martin Del Potro and other winners on Day 3 at the 2011 US Open.


2008 US Open finalist Andy Murray scored an impressive victory over Indian star Somdev Devvarman to advance to the second round of the 2011 US Open, season fourth and final Grand Slam event being played here at Flushing Meadows in New York, USA.

Murray made a bad start to the match and lost his serve in the very first game. However, the Scot did instant damage control and eventually pushed the first set into the decisive tie-break where he narrowly edged Devvarman to have a confidence boosting lead in the match.

The second set saw Murray break Devvarman's serve three times with the help of his trademark blistering service returns and scintillating passing shots that seemed too much to handle for the Indian star. Soon, Murray had a considerable two sets to love lead.

The third set once again opened on a favourable note for Murray who raced to a 5-1 lead, just to be broken by Devvarman in an unusually jittery service game. However, with his third break of the set, he completed the match with a 7-6(5), 6-2. 6-3 scoreline in two hours and 27 minutes of play.

Earlier today, 2009 champion Juan Martin Del Potro ended the challenge of Italian Filippo Volandri comfortably, winning 6-3, 6-1, 6-1 to set up a clash with fellow Argentine Diego Junqueira.

Other notable winners of the day are Julien Benneteau, Feliciano Lopez, Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, Denis Istomin and Robin Haase, who all scored convicing wins over their respective opponents to move ahead in the draw.
