Andy Murray survives huge US Open scare
New York: Third seed and 2012 champion Andy Murray came back from two sets down to defeat tiring Frenchman Adrian Mannarino and make the US Open third round on Thursday.
Murray triumphed 5-7, 4-6, 6-1, 6-3, 6-1 after his World No 35 opponent had threatened to condemn him to his earliest loss in New York since also making the second round on debut in 2005.
“It was extremely tough. He hits the ball really flat, has fantastic timing on both sides and it was hard to read the ball,” said Murray.
