In his first match since his historic Wimbledon win, Andy Murray began his North American season with a second round match against Marcel Granollers. Granollers fresh from winning last week in Austria would always be a good test for Murray and he definately was today. In a close two setter Murray had to come back from set point down as well as 2-5 in the second set to win in a close 64 76. At times Murray did appear rusty which was to be expected with having a break from the tour. In the next round Murray faces Latvian Gulbis. Murray joins Djokovic, Gasquet, Nishkori and surprisingly Canadian Pospisil in the third round.
