Tennis: Champions Murray, Serena in Sunday special
NEW YORK (AFP) - Defending champions Andy Murray and Serena Williams as well as Novak Djokovic are the Sunday special acts at the US Open while former title winner Lleyton Hewitt looks to continue his dream run.
Third seed Murray, who is also the Olympic and Wimbledon champion, disposed of Leonardo Mayer in the second round and now faces another Mayer - Germany's Florian Mayer - for a place in the fourth round.
Murray has a 2-0 career lead over the 29-year-old German, winning their most recent meeting in two tiebreak sets on the Madrid clay earlier this year.
Mayer, the world number 47, has twice been a Wimbledon quarter-finalist in 2004 and 2012 but has never got beyond the third round in New York.
