Day one – Dart seals biggest win of her career; magic Murray opens with a victory
Harriet Dart claimed both her first US Open and first top 10 win on day one at Flushing Meadows as she overcame world No.9 Daria Kastkina 7-6(8), 1-6, 6-4.
Meanwhile, Andy Murray is through to the second round at the US Open with an impressive 7-5, 6-3, 6-3 win to knock out the 24th seed Francisco Cerundolo. However, Kyle Edmund lost out to fifth seed Casper Ruud 6-3, 7-5, 6-2.

Both Dart and Kastkina struggled to hold throughout the match – with 10 breaks of serve in the first set alone. The British No.2 recovered from 3-1 down, thanks to some ferocious baseline hitting, but only managed one hold in the first set as the pair eventually went to a tie-break.
Kasatkina – who came in off the back of winning the title in Granby only a few days prior – couldn’t find the killer blow on two set points as the resilient Dart dug deep to grind out a difficult opening.
However, the 10th seed had the perfect response in the second, ramping up her energy and intensity from the first game, starting with what had been a rare hold. She won 36% more points on first serve to take the set in only 26 minutes.
The world No.9 led the decider 2-0, but Dart refused to go away, breaking back twice to take the score to 3-3. A crucial hold for the Brit, as Kastkina appeared to retreat further behind the baseline gave her a 4-3 lead. More unforced errors from Kastakina offered the chance for Dart to serve out the match, which she took at the first time of asking.
Dart will now face Dalma Galfi in her first US Open second round match.

After his 50th US Open win, Murray will play American wild card Emilio Nava, who came through a five-set battle to beat John Millman in round one.
“I was really happy with the way I got through that one, it wasn’t easy,” said Murray. “He’s had a brilliant year this year and I knew I’d have to play well and I did in the important moments.”
There were early warning signs for Murray, who let a 40-15 lead slip in the opening game as the Argentinian struck the first break of serve with the Brit pushing his backhand volley long. But with the shoe on the other foot, Murray recovered a two game point deficit himself to break back at the first time of asking – game on.

The Brit had the opportunity to serve out the first set at 5-3, after claiming back-to-back breaks to start the match, but Cerundolo kept his composure to out rally the former champion and get back on level terms. With momentum threatening to shift in the Argentinian’s favour, Murray refused to let his form drop, holding to love for 6-5 before handing over to his world-renowned return of serve to clinch a pivotal first set.
Spurred on by a strong end to the opener, Murray took command in the second winning the first five games to the loss of just seven points. The former world No.1 held off Cerundolo’s potential comeback from 5-3 and refused to let up into the third.
The 24th seed struggled on serve throughout – only managing 26% points won off the second serve – and surrendered another break in the first game of the third, setting Murray up to take the victory in two hours and 43 minutes.

It was a huge day for Edmund, with his return to the US Open marking his first Grand Slam singles event since US Open 2020. The former British No.1 edged in front with a break in the third game after long backhand exchange ended in the Norwegian firing long, but it didn’t take long for Ruud to get going. Having broken the Brit straight back, the fifth seed would go on to lead for the rest of the match.
Former Australian Open semi-finalist, Edmund, showed plenty of promising signs for a player returning from long-term injury, going toe-to-toe with the French Open runner-up throughout most of the match. He showed great fight to break Ruud as he served for the second set but was unable to back it up, in what felt like a decisive moment.
An early break in the third all but sealed Edmund’s fate. The British star tried to overpower Ruud and showed glimpses of his rocket groundstrokes as he racked up 28 winners, but his 44 unforced error count to his opponent’s 20 proved the difference in the end.
