Murray Guts Out Win at US Open

By Jim McCoy Mon 25th August SportsTennisUS Open
Spinning in 70 mph second serves, grabbing at his hamstrings, Andy Murray gritted his way through cramps to win his first-round match at the U.S. Open. The eighth-seeded Murray beat Robin Haase 6-3, 7-6 (6), 1-6, 7-5 on a steamy Monday. He started cramping in the back of his shoulder early in the third set, then it spread to his forearm. Murray was twice down a break in the fourth set, but Haase unraveled with a string of unforced errors. The 70th-ranked Haase wasted three break points in the final game, when he was also hurt by a missed call. In the second round of the 2011 U.S. Open, Murray rallied from a two-set deficit to beat Haase.
