Andy Murray is proud of his fightback from two sets down against Adrian Mannarino and believes winning in five will give him extra confidence for the rest of the US Open.
In temperatures pushing 33 degrees Celsius in New York, Murray looked in trouble for the best part of two hours against the world number 35, but the Scot found his groove when it mattered most to go through 5-7 4-6 6-1 6-3 6-1.
"I'm proud of the way I fought," Murray said.
"It was not an easy match to come through at all. He was making it extremely difficult for me, I thought he played some really, really good tennis.
"He has such an unorthodox game, I didn't really feel that comfortable at many points out there but I was very happy with the way I fought through that and finished the match stronger than him."

British number one Andy Murray and world number one Novak Djokovic are set to do battle again in Montreal.
The pair will renew their rivalry when they contest the final of the Rogers Cup on Sunday after coming through their respective semi-finals comfortably.
Many expected Murray to have a long drawn out contest with Japan's Kei Nishikori, but that never materialised as the world number four wilted after an early flourish in just an hour and five minutes.
Murray went on to seal the first set 6-3 and then he blitzed Nishikori off the court 6-0 in the second to set up the clash with Djokovic, who has beaten him on each of their last eight meetings.
Djokovic had earlier put himself closer to a fifth ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title of the year after cruising past Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-4 6-4.
