Andy Murray keeps his cool to beat wild man Nick Kyrgios at US Open

Published Add your comment

Andy Murray successfully tamed his dangerous first-round opponent Nick Kyrgios as the British number one sealed a controlled four-set victory at the US Open.

Kyrgios produced a typically explosive display under the lights of Arthur Ashe Stadium but Murray's touch and precision were a class above as the Briton won 7-5 6-3 4-6 6-1.

Murray has now won all four of his meetings against Kyrgios, including three at grand slams this year, and the Scot will now face France's Adrian Mannarino in round two.
