Andy Murray suffered his worst grand slam defeat since losing to Stanislas Wawrinka in the third round in New York three years ago.

Speaking at post-match press conference a visibly disappointed Murray said: "I don't think I was playing poorly. I got to the quarter-finals of a slam which isn't easy.

"I would have liked to have played a little bit better but I've had a good run the last couple of years. It's a shame I had to play a bad match today."

Dan Evans to face Tommy Robredo in third round

Britain's new tennis sensation, Dan Evans, will take on Spaniard Tommy Robredo in the third round of the US Open.

The Birmingham man has surprised the tennis world with his performances so far at this year's tournament - which he only qualified for because another player dropped out.

His defeat of 11th seed Kei Nishikori in the first round earlier this week was Evans' first ever US Open match.

He followed that up by defeating Australian, Bernard Tomic, yesterday - a player whose father blocked a practice session with Evans, claiming he was not good enough.

Nineteenth seed Tommy Robredo beat Marinko Matosevic in four sets in his first round match, and dominated Frank Dancevic in the second round in straight sets.
