Murray to face Hyung-Taik Lee in US Open 3rd round match today

Andy Murray will continue his comeback today in New York, and is up 4th on Grandstand court today to face Koreas Hyung-Taik Lee.  He has played Lee before, and beat him earlier in the year in San Jose.  31 year old Lee, who just knocked 14th seed Guillermo Canas out of the competition, is enjoying the best season of his career so far, and is looking to make it into the last 16 at Flushing Meadows seven years after he last got that far.  Speaking about his upcoming opponent, Murray said:

“Lee is a really good player, very consistent and solid.  He does everything well, nothing unbelievable, but he’s in really good shape…  He’s got a good serve, moves well and it’s going to be a hard match”

Andy will go into his third round match in New York ready for a fight after watching videos of boxing legend Muhammad Ali.  He has been working with the LTA’s sports psychology manager Robert Forzoni, who has tried to help Murray get back that ‘winning feeling’.  And it appears to be working; this is the first time since he injured his wrist in May that Murray has won more than one match in a row at a tournament.

If Andy gets through to the fourth round (which he should…) he will more than likely face Nikolai Davydenko, who beat him at the same point in the tournament last year.  However since then he has beaten the Russian twice, in Doha and Indian Wells, both times in straight sets.
