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.
