UK tennis fans may have to be up early (or late) for this one.

The match could be starting anywhere from 1 am onwards on Friday (UK), depending on how long the previous match on the Arthur Ashe Stadium court goes.

Murray had to dig deep in his first-round match as he was staring defeat in the face.

But an astonishing comeback puts him through to the second round where he will now meet one of the rising stars of the game in Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime.

Andy Murray Preview – Murray dig it out

Andy Murray faced Yoshihito Nishioka in the first round of the US Open, a match the Brit was odds-on favourite to win in US Open tennis betting.

It was no walk in the park for Murray however, who battled right back from two sets and a break down against his Japanese opponent to win.

That was Murray’s first Grand Slam action since the 2019 Australian Open.

To survive that match he did have to stave off a match point against him.

The match was four hours and 39 minutes long, not something that Murray would have wanted.

The 2012 Champion was really sluggish early in his first-round match at Flushing Meadows, and didn’t look comfortable.

It wasn’t until he just started going for his shots, shaking off his defensive mode, that he came good.

Our betting prediction:
Auger-Aliassime 3-1

For most of the first couple of sets, Murray’s body language was really poor as he couldn’t find an answer to his opponent.

But then he started to find a second wind in the third set as his tournament place was on the line.

Maybe he just needed loosing up, but Murray is the 6/4 underdog in US Open tennis betting for his second-round match* (odds taken 02:39 GMT Thursday, 3rd September).

This will be his first-ever match against the young Canadian who is likely to run him all over the court.


Felix Auger-Aliassime Preview – Big chance for Auger-Aliassime

20-year-old Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime, ranked 21st in the world has a big chance of knocking out a big name here.

His activity this year is W14 L10, most of the success there built in February when he reached back to back finals in Rotterdam and Marseille (he lost both).

This is just his third main draw appearance at the US Open, making it past the first round for the first time.

Earlier this year he was also knocked out in the first round of the Australian Open.

So this is a little bit of progress from him after beating Brazil’s Thiago Monteiro in the first round.

That was not a short match either, three of the four sets needing a tie break.

Felix Auger-Aliassime did have his first serve win percentage going well in the first round, up at 84%.

The majority of his winners do come from his forehand so Murray is going to need to probably keep the Canadian on his backhand as much as possible.

However, to back up that serve, Auger-Aliassime had a 55% second-serve win percentage in the first round compared to just 47% from Murray.

But Murray tops things in the stats when it comes to return points won and scoring off second serve returns.


Andy Murray vs Felix Auger-Aliassime Betting Advice

Recovery time becomes an important factor for Murray after all the time away from the top level and surgeries to save his career.

Having his first-round match go over four hours was just about the last thing he needed ahead of a meeting with a fast young player in Auger-Aliassime.

How well, or perhaps more to the point, how long is the defence of Murray going to hold up in this intriguing contest?

Because of that we have to side with the Auger-Aliassime win and looking for a little value we would lean on him to get the win by a 3-1 score in set betting for 3/1* (odds taken 02:39 GMT Thursday, 3rd September).
