- From the section Tennis
Andy Murray reacts to his victory over Feliciano Lopez in round three of the US Open, admitting he struggled with the conditions on his way to a four-set win over the Spaniard.
The third seed believes that playing "a little bit better" than Lopez at the end of the tie-breaks was the key to his victory, and reveals the Spaniard's consistent serving had been a source of frustration for the duration of the match.
Murray struggled in the heat on the Louis Armstrong Stadium, but came through 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-5) 4-6 7-6 (7-4) in three hours 53 minutes to reach the last 16.
