World No. 4 Andy Murray kept his US Open run alive, ousting Canada's Milos Raonic to reach the quarterfinals. The third seed is through to face 12th seed Marin Cilic for a place in the semifinals.
Olympic gold medalist Andy Murray advanced to the final eight at the US Open following his straight-set upending of 15th seed Milos Raonic. The 25-year-old converted four of 12 break points en route to a 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 victory in 120 minutes.
Murray broke to 5-4 in the opening set, aided by a well-timed drop-shot. Triple set-point came in short order for the Scot, who closed once Raonic missed a service return.
After he missed two break chances at 2-2 in the second, a forehand error from the 15th seed gave Murray a 3-2 edge. The third seed held double set point at 5-3, but was unable to convert. Set point number three arrived at 5-4, with Murray striking an ace to seal the two-sets-to-love lead.
Murray continued his effort to break at 1-1 and 4-2 in set three. The No. 3 seed completed the round of 16 with 8 aces and 31 winners.
He will take on world No. 13 Marin Cilic in the quarterfinals. Cilic defeated Slovakia's Martin Klizan in the round of 16.
