Murray stars in another big win

Andy Murray

Andy Murray continued his good form at the US Open tennis tournament, earning a spot in the fourth round.

Murray cruised past American player Taylor Dent in straight sets in New York, 6-3 6-2 6-2.

Murray is the second best player in the world at the moment, so is expected to reach the semi-finals.

The tournament is another chance for the British number one to win his first Grand Slam event, and he will play Marin Cilic in the next round.

After the match Dent spoke about how hard it is to play against Murray: "He doesn't miss, he really doesn't miss. I don't think that I served great tonight, but I don't think that I served poorly, either."

Murray is keen to do well at the tournament, saying: "I've always enjoyed the atmosphere. New York's one of my favourite cities.

"I came here the first time when I was 15 to play the juniors, and we got treated great here."
