    Murray cruises into third round Reigning Olympic gold medalist Andy Murray continued his run at the US Open, having breezed through his late-night match against Ivan Dodig. The Scot will take on either 30th seed Feliciano Lopez or Pablo Andujar in the third round.

    Third seed Andy Murray is through to the round of 32 after taking out Croatia’s Ivan Dodig. The 25-year-old tallied 10 aces en route to a 6-2, 6-1, 6-3 victory in an hour and 51 minutes.

    After winning the first two sets, Murray broke to 3-1 on a double-fault from Dodig. Match point came in short order for the Scot, who closed the match with 30 winners and six of nine break points converted.

    Murray will meet either 30th seed Feliciano Lopez or Pablo Andujar for a place in the round of 16.

Tried to stay awake to watch without any success :-(
But woke up again in time to catch the last game!!
Cant stand the morons commentating on the Eurosport channel. When will they understand silence can sometimes be golden.
Still holding my breath but it's looking promising.

No one will stop Fed/Muzza meeting in the semi's. Well i hope so anyway, i can't wait!

brothdog , 8/30/12 10:41 AM

And no one will stop Federer beating Murray in straight sets either.....
Unless Roger's tired from one difficult match 2 days before, or doesn't want to win, or is being kind etc

Lol, i'm not so sure twingey. I think Fed wil be feeling generous, will let him have 1 set ;)

brothdog , 8/30/12 12:29 PM

Murray is too smug.

But Murray's win meybe

never nadal

Gotta laugh, Twinge. I've seen some fed fans using fed's long 3-setter against delpo as the reason muzz beat him. like there could be no way someone might just have been better than the Great One that day! But muzz losing to fed in uso final 2008, 23 hours after muzz fimished a gruelling SF encounter with rafa? Well that was the Great One's class shine through when it counted, of course ... Ha, ha.

It's way too early for me to make a prediction on a possible Fed/Murray matchup in the semis. A lot of tennis to be played yet.

Novak played a #69 better and quicker than Murray played #117.

Yes but wouldn't it be fabulous to see Murray whip his ass again like he did at the Olympics?

jean, 8/31/12 3:13 AM,

Absolutely! I'd love to see it! :)

I told you and made an elaborate post in the other thread , for Fed fans, its all about selective cherry picking. Just load arguements to suit Fed and make him look good, but dont apply that same logic to others. Its getting highly irritating to say the least

I just hope Murray whips Fed just to shut up his fans and their unreasonable biased comments

Andy's got to get through Raonic first....*nervous twitching* Fleming said when his serve's on he's "unplayable." Further *nervous twitching.*

deuce , 8/31/12 7:39 AM

Well one can say when Andy's serve is on, he is pretty tough to beat! I know that seeing your favorite up against a guy like Raonic is nerve-wracking. It's hard to watch a guy bombing serves and aces all over the place.

Raonic had an easier time in straight sets after that tough five setter in which he had to come back. It should be a good match.

Keep the faith!

"Novak played a #69 better and quicker than Murray played #117..."

yeah yeah keep on wishing & praying beyotch,
Soon you'll have to suck up all your anti-murray bu****it.
And I'll be there to see it..

Twinge , 8/31/12 10:50 AM

Well, Murray definitely has slam win due over Fed. Let's wait and see whether he is able to do it this time or not.

Well, according to Ricky, he won't have to as Blake is gonna take care of Milos. LOL.

I don't think Raonic has the mental game to stay consistent enough to beat Muzz at the USO over 5-sets.

Blake was amazing. I'm afraid this is where the road ends for Milos.

RickyDimon, 8/31/12 2:09 PM

Deuce, LOL.


Conspirator , 8/31/12 5:34 PM

Raonic has the game to beat any top 10 player, though Blake is not gonna be an easy customer.
I think its too early to predict S/F line up between RF and AM as Roger has to first beat Fernando Verdasco, Fish/Simon/Berdych on his way.

hrsikesa , 8/31/12 6:04 PM

Yay! Robson takes out another Grand Slam winner :)
Go Laura, Go!
