Murray stranded against Canadian talent in second round US Open

Andy Murray was eliminated in the second round of the US Open. The 2012 champion in New York had little to say against the Canadian talent Félix Auger-Aliassime: 2-6, 3-6, 4-6.

The 33-year-old Murray was out of rotation for a long time due to hip surgery and needed 4 hours and 39 minutes to beat Yoshihito Nishioka in his first grand light game in 20 months on Tuesday.

“I still have a lot of work to do on my body and my condition,” the Scottish tennis player said after the hopeless defeat against Auger-Aliassime.

The fifteenth placed Canadian reigned on all fronts. Auger-Aliassime beat 52 winners, including 24 aces (compared to nine Murray winners) and he didn’t lose a single breakpoint.

The 20-year-old talent meets in the next round the winner of the match between Corentin Moutet and Daniel Evans.
