Andy Murray: Took first grand slam win at the US Open two years ago
British No1 Murray is experiencing a difficult year and heads into the US Open without a tournament win under his belt.
Murray, who won his first grand slam at Flushing Meadows in 2012, has not lifted an ATP trophy nor even reached a final since his historic triumph at Wimbledon last year.
Prior to an encouraging run which saw him reach the semi-finals of the French Open, his only appearance in the last four of an ATP tournament was in a 500 event in Acapulco.
The departure of Ivan Lendl did not seem to help matters but the 27-year-old is now finally settled with a new coach - former women's world No 1 Amelie Mauresmo.
The partnership did not produce the desired results at Wimbledon, where Murray lost to Grigor Dimitrov in the last eight - the first time had failed to reach at least the semi-finals in five years.
Murray was also eliminated in the quarter-finals at last year’s US Open, a tournament he had won the year prior and finished as runner-up in 2008.
Murray is a natural counter-puncher who prefers baseline exchanges, but he also possesses great anticipation and a fantastic change of pace.
