Andy Murray Confident Ahead of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga Match
Any Murray has said that he thinks his physical problems, which hampered him early in the US Open, are now behind him.
He beat Andrey Kuznetsov 6 – 1, 7 – 5, 4 – 6, 6 – 2 on Saturday and will now face Jo-Wilfriend Tsonga in the fourth round. After his victory he said that he feels like he’s in “very good shape” and that he doesn’t think that the cramp will be a problem for the rest of the tournament.
Murray dominated for much of the match but Kuznetsov did manage to break his serve four times and force a fourth set. The match against Tsonga is likely to prove far more trying. Tsonga, the ninth seed, beat Murray at their last encounter in Toronto in early August and then went on to win the tournament.
The two have played 11 times on the ATP tour and Murray has won 9 of the encounters. In addition to winning in August, Tsonga also beat Murray at the 2008 Australian Open.
The fourth round match will take place on Monday evening in the Arthur Ashe Stadium.
