Six Britons in action

Hello and welcome to Telegraph Sport’s coverage of day two of the US Open.

There are six Britons in action today, with Katie Boulter getting proceedings under way against France’s Diane Parry at 4pm.

She is followed by Andy Murray, who begins his tournament with a first round match against Corentin Moutet of France scheduled for 6.30pm.

It is now 11 years since Murray secured his first grand slam crown at Flushing Meadows. The 36-year-old has shown signs of promise in 2023, reaching the third round of the Australian Open in January and pushing fifth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas close in a five-set loss at Wimbledon.

However, the 33-year-old has been troubled by injury and was forced to withdraw from Cincinnati earlier this month with an abdominal strain. If he overcomes world No 71 Moutet, he is due a tough second-round clash with 19th seed Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria.

Cameron Norrie, Dan Evans and Jack Draper also begin their campaigns in the men’s competition today, while Jodie Burrage joins Boulter in the women’s draw.

Norrie has lost four consecutive matches since Wimbledon, while Draper has struggled with a shoulder injury all summer. Evans, meanwhile, endured a difficult run of defeats before winning the biggest title of his career in Washington.

They will all hope to match the form of British qualifier Lily Miyazaki, who won her first main draw Grand Slam singles match on Monday with a scintillating straight-sets victory against Margarita Betova.
