Andy Murray started his 2023 US Open with a first round victory over Corentin Moutet of France – which saw the Brit clock up his 200th win at a grand slam event.
He did, however, criticise the “farce” of a video-assist review system which took “about four minutes” to reach a decision before the umpire announced it wasn’t working.
The 36-year-old has shown signs of promise throughout 2023, reaching the third round of the Australian Open in January and pushing fifth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas close in a second round five-setter at Wimbledon. Now he faces 19th-seed Grigor Dimitrov, who lost in this summer’s Queen’s semi-finals to Carlos Alcaraz before reaching the fourth round at Wimbledon, where Holger Rune ended his run.
