US Open: Tsitsipas advances with four-set victory

Stefanos Tsitsipas needed five sets to beat former World No. 1 and 2012 champion Andy Murray in the first round at the US Open. On Thursday, it looked like Tsitsipas may have to take a similar arduous route into the third round when he lost a set to France's Adrian Mannarino but the Greek pulled up his socks and blanked the Franch player in the next two sets to reach the third round in New York. Tsitsipas eventually won the match 6-3, 6-4, 6-7(4), 6-0 to reach the third round at Flushing Meadows. 

No 2 seed Daniil Medvedev did not face much trouble in despatching Dominik Keopler of Germany 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 as the weather played spoilsport at the US Open, leading to suspension of matches on outside courts.  Tsitsipas needed two hours and 41 minutes, just more than half of the four hours and 49 minutes he needed against Murray.
