Andy Murray battles past Duckworth. John Isner moves to round two

Andy Murray set for for US Open

Andy Murray set for for US Open

Murray will now play No. 31 seed Fernando Verdasco in the Round of 64, after the Spaniard dispatched countryman Feliciano Lopez in straight sets earlier in the day.

Wawrinka will next face 20-year-old Frenchman Ugo Humbert who is making his Grand Slam debut.

Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic both begin their campaigns with matches on Arthur Ashe Stadium, Djokovic taking on Hungary's Marton Fucsovics and Federer facing Yoshihito Nishioka of Japan in the night session.

The three-time slam victor, now ranked at 101, followed up his quarter-final run at the Cincinnati Masters with a strong showing against the Bulgarian, who he defeated in the first round of a grand slam for the second time running.

"It's quite clear the way I'm trying to play".

Nadal moves through to a second-round clash with Canada's Vasek Pospisil, while Dominic Thiem overcame his recent poor form to record a straightforward 6-3 6-1 6-4 win against Bosnian Mirza Basic. It was a lot quicker for me, anyway, than what we have been practicing in since we got here.

The 2016 champion couldn't defend his title previous year and needed two left knee surgeries, but has had some good results this summer.

Duckworth finally returned to the tour healthy at the French Open in May after being helped by, among others, Australia captain Lleyton Hewitt, another man who is no stranger to an operating theatre.

President rails against Google for 'rigging' his search results for 'Trump news'
She said she performed the search several times using different computers, and the results did not differ considerably. Trump said results for "Trump News" is purposely set up to show CNN and "fake news media" to promote negative stories.

Murray missed last year's Open due to his hip troubles.

Murray shifted into a higher gear in set number two, sailing through his service games and creating six break points, stealing James's serve in games three and nine for a 6-3, looking much better than in the opener. A few weeks ago I was still struggling a lot. "I improved from there".

"I just have to wait and see how I pull up tomorrow".

Wimbledon finalist Kevin Anderson won a 5-set thriller 7-6, 5-7, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 against Ryan Harrison.

Shapovalov, 19, burst on to the scene last summer but for 18-year-old Auger-Aliassime this was his first taste of the big time after coming through qualifying.

As Duckworth's forehand fell in the net on Murray's first match point, the Scot raised his arms above his head before a single fist-pump, the celebration a combination of satisfaction and relief after the toughest period of his career.

While three-time champion Nadal and Ferrer close proceedings on Arthur Ashe Stadium, world number three and 2009 victor Juan Martin del Potro brings the first day on the new Louis Armstrong Stadium to a conclusion.
