    Murray through to US Open third round


    by ODN


    Andy Murray has charged into the third round of the US Open with a dominant performance against Jamaica's Dustin Brown.

    Murray needed just 85 minutes to seal a 7-5 6-3 6-0 victory at Arthur Ashe Stadium, shrugging off a brief rain delay to advance to the last 32 at Flushing Meadows for the fifth year in succession.

    The flamboyant Brown delighted his noisy band of supporters with some extravagant hitting early on, but once Murray got to grips with the 25-year-old's serve the result was never in doubt.

    Murray said: "I'd never played him before so at the start of the match it was very interesting. He went for his shots huge and was hitting fun shots so I was glad to get off in straight sets. It was tough conditions - very windy out there.

    "It was very different. He's a shotmaker, he is obviously fun to watch and had great support today. It was a good atmosphere and I enjoyed it."

    The win sees Murray set up a clash with either Juan Ignacio Chela or Stanislas Wawrinka.
