US Open tennis 2015 results, highlights: Andy Murray beaten by Kevin Anderson in an epic 4th round match

South African Kevin Anderson has made history by beating Andy Murray in fourth round. With the win he enters into the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam for the first time. And for the first time in five years, Andy Murray is out before that stage.

Many had expected Andy Murray to win the match without much of an effort. Nonetheless the fourth round match was fiercest in the US Open thus far. Monday evening on Louis Armstrong Stadium Anderson and Murray engaged in one of the most memorable matches in recent history in men’s tennis, the No. 15 seed delivering an outright shocker against the 2012 U.S. Open champion in the longest match of the tournament, four hours and 18 minutes. It was an amazing spectacle.

The way Andy Murray is playing in the US Open 2015 tennis tournament has impressed almost everyone else. Despite tough fights, he has been able to cross at least three hurdles thus far.

The biggest challenged in the tournament came very early indeed. His second round looked very tough. The way Adrian Mannarino played gave impression that Andy Murray’s journey in New York will end earlier than many thought. But somehow or the other he was able to overcome his impressive opponent and enter the third round.

Thankfully the third round match against Brazil’s Thomaz Bellucci was rather easier and he could beat him without much of an issue. It was rather a breezy win for the Brit. Murray, who is the third seeded player in the US Open tennis this year was able to overcome his Brazilian opponent rather easily. He won the third round match 6-3, 6-2, 7-5 to set up a fourth-round meeting with the South African 14th seed Kevin Anderson.

Andy-Murray-Trophy_2826572There is no denying the fact that he is hoping to beat Kevin Anderson to enter the quarter final. The Scot, with a deep drawl and ground strokes that paint the far end of the court, was on target against Bellucci – he missed just 15 of 91 service returns, while striking 14 forehand winners – a performance that was all about power and precision.
While talking about his journey in the tournament Andy Murray said, “The conditions were so much nicer to play in today…You weren’t really struggling for breath after long rallies. Conditioning-wise the first couple of rounds, it doesn’t get much harder than that. To get through those matches, especially the second one, was important. I played well in these conditions, it’s a bit easier to control the ball. The ball was not bouncing as high. It was sort of flatter. The other day, when you tried to flatten the ball out, it was quite easy for it to sail on you. Today when you flattened the ball, it was easier to control. It was harder to serve, slower conditions so fewer aces.”
