FLUSHING MEADOWS, NY - Third seeds Andy Murray and Maria Sharapova have reached the US Open second round on Monday with straight set victories.
Despite the 6-2, 6-4, 6-1 win over Russian Alex Bogomolov, he struggled at times with his serve and play in general.
“I just didn’t serve that well” Murray told media. “Didn’t serve well most of the match. That was why I actually felt okay. I mean, I lost serve, then I broke straight back I think both times.
“It was more the serving. I just didn’t serve that well.
“I won in three sets. You know, I didn’t serve very well. Only lost seven games in three sets, so I must have done something well today.
“Bogomolov, you know, I think he was seeded here last year. He made the third round. He plays his best tennis on the hard courts. He’s a tough player.
“I played fairly well from the back of the court. I just would have liked to have served a bit better because, you know, I wasn’t getting many free points on my serve.
