With pros in the stands, Murray saves match point at US Open
Andy Murray, of Great Britain, reacts after defeating Yoshihito Nishioka, of Japan, during the first round of the US Open tennis championships, Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2020, in New York. The Murray match provided the most entertainment in the afternoon of Day 2 at Flushing Meadows, where his lengthy victory was followed in Ashe by a straight-set win for Serena Williams. Three-time champion Kim Clijsters, mounting a career comeback and playing her first match at a major in eight years, lost to Ekaterina Alexandrova 3-6, 7-5, 6-1Its rare that you have lots of, like, players watching your match, Murray said. But he had surgery on his right hip in January 2018, then again in January 2019, shortly after a first-round loss at the Australian Open. I think at the beginning of the match, I was apprehensive about playing a long match because I havent done one for a while, Murray said.
