ANDY MURRAY dropped a set to Nick Kyrgios for the first time but is safely through to the US Open second round.
Two of Murray’s fellow Brits bit the dust as Laura Robson and James Ward were sent packing while Aljaz Bedene progressed after his opponent, Ernests Gulbis, retired injured.
Today the second round gets under way with top seed Novak Djokovic topping the bill and title holder Marin Cilic also in action while the Williams sisters look for stress-free progress in the women’s singles.
My overs treble was let down on the final leg by Ryan Harrison bowing out with a whimper as he failed to take a set off fellow American Rajeev Ram. I’m hoping for better from the likes of Mardy Fish and Fabio Fognini today.
Elsewhere there’s stage 11 of cycling’s Tour of Spain and Major League Baseball among the sporting highlights so let’s hear your tips and thoughts and good luck with your bets.
Scott’s tennis treble
