- Canadian wins 6-2, 6-3, 6-4 to move into third round
- Murray’s first grand slam since surgery comes to end
Andy Murray’s US Open comeback came to an end in the second round at the hands of Canadian prodigy Felix Auger-Aliassime and the Scot, in his first grand slam singles tournament since career-saving hip surgery 20 months ago, bowed out after a 6-2, 6-3, 6-4 defeat.
The two-time Wimbledon champion, 33, had run himself into the ground in a four-and-a-half hour, five-set marathon against Yoshihito Nishioka on Tuesday. And a hard-running, hard-hitting 20-year-old was his opponent just two days later, with a match against Dan Evans or Corentin Moutet awaiting the winner.
