Andy Murray goes head to head with Grigor Dimitrov in what promises to be an intriguing second-round battle at the US Open.

Andy Murray vs Grigor Dimitrov Prediction

It is now 11 years since Murray won his first major title at Flushing Meadows, while he was also a runner-up to Roger Federer in 2008.

Although a finalist in Doha earlier this season, a couple of injury issues affected the three-time major winner’s preparations for the final slam of 2023.

Meanwhile, Geneva runner-up Dimitrov arguably has the edge in terms of match sharpness and momentum following his recent runs to the Wimbledon fourth round and Citi Open semi-finals.

That may just sway this contest in the Bulgarian’s favour, though it has the potential to go the distance.

Andy Murray road to the US Open second round

Murray had only lost once in the first round in his 16 previous US Open appearances.

And the former world number one never really looked like suffering a second such defeat as he overcame Corentin Moutet without too many difficulties.

Round Opponent Result
First Round Corentin Moutet 6-2, 7-5, 6-3

Grigor Dimitrov road to the US Open second round

By contrast, Dimitrov was forced to dig deep and come from behind as he was taken to the wire by Alex Molcan.

The Bulgarian will be hoping for much smoother progress this time around as he aims to reach round three for only the second time in seven years.

Round Opponent Result
First Round Alex Molcan 6-7(9), 6-7(5), 6-1, 7-5, 7-6(9)
