Britain's Andy Murray has been seeded eighth for the 2014 US Open, which starts at Flushing Meadows on Monday.

The 27-year-old, who won the tournament in 2012, has not won an ATP ranking event since Wimbledon in 2013.

Broady, 24, who was part of the qualifying draw for a third consecutive year, lost 7-5 (8-6) 7-6 (7-2) to American Tornado Alicia Black in two hours and 16 minutes.

Britons James Ward, Daniel Evans and Daniel Smethurst play their first-round qualifiers in New York on Wednesday.

The seedings for the women's tournament will be announced on Wednesday, with the draw taking place the following day.
