Andy Murray drawn against Nick Kyrgios in US Open

Curated by

 

Murray, seeded third, played Kyrgios at both the Australian Open and French Open earlier this year, winning on both occasions without dropping a set. Andy Murray has been drawn against tennis bad boy Nick Kyrgios in the first round of the US Open, which begins on Monday. Kyrgios, 20, recently courted controversy with an on-court sledge aimed at Wawrinka during their match at the Rogers Cup in Montreal.

 

 

  • James Ward could face Murray in the third round if he was to get through two rounds, the first of which is against Brazilian Thomaz Bellucci.
  • Rafael Nadal has also been handed a tricky first match against Croatian world No 35 Borna Coric.
  • Kyrgios was initially fined £6,405 ($10,000) for his behaviour and, after a further review, was hit with another fine of £15,880 ($25,000) plus a suspension of 28 days.
