Murray to make Grand Slam return in New York

Andy won his first Grand Slam at the US Open in 2012

Dunblane’s Andy Murray will face unseeded Australian James Duckworth in the first round of the US Open tennis.

The tournament, which Andy won back in 2012, gets underway next week.

It marks a return to Grand Slam tennis for the 31-year-old, who hasn’t been involved in one of the sport’s big events since losing in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon in 2017.

The former world number one was set to compete at the All England Club earlier this summer, before pulling out just before the tournament got underway.

If Andy gets past Duckworth, he will face the winner of the all-Spanish clash between Feliciano Lopez and Fernando Verdasco.

He could then come against another former champion at Flushing Meadows in Round Three, Argentina’s 2009 winner Juan Martin Del Potro.

Elsewhere, British number one Kyle Edmund will go up against Italian Paolo Lorenzi, while female top seed Jo Konta will meet Caroline Garcia.

2017 winner Rafa Nadal meets compatriot David Ferrer, Roger Federer plays Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka and defending women’s champion Sloane Stephens starts her defence against Evgeniya Rodina.

There could also be a meeting between the Williams sisters in the last 32.
