FLUSHING MEADOWS, NY – No. 3 seed Andy Murray muted Canadian Milos Raonic’s rocket of a serve with superb service returns to win 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 on Monday night at the US Open. Murray broke Raonic 4 times, but only faced one break point himself.
“I used a lot of variation tonight. Milos has a huge game, massive serve. I had to guess on some of the serves,” Murray said. “I got lucky a few times.”
The Scottish Olympic singles gold medalist Murray has reached the semifinals of his eighth consecutive major with the victory over the 15th seed.
In his on-court interview after the match, Murray said: “You start to see things after a few games. He started serving a lot of big serves. I was just trying to react as quickly as possible.
“Sometimes they fly past you, sometimes you get a racket on them — and I got a racket on them.”
Murray hit 31 winners with only 12 unforced errors.
Murray will play for a semifinal berth against 12th seed Marin Cilic of Croatia.
