Andy Murray returns to the scene of his first Grand Slam victory when he heads to the courts at Flushing Meadows for the first round of the US Open on Monday.
It has been ten years since Murray defeated Novak Djokovic in a five-set match at the New York event in 2012, at which point he defeated a major duck in the fifth Grand Slam final of his career.

The Scot is off to a tough start in the first round against Argentina’s 24th seed Francisco Cerundro. He is a player noted for his powerful forehand and won his first ATP title at his Open in Båstad last month.
