Murray vs Dimitrov live streams: TV schedule, dates
Former U.S. Open champion Murray started his campaign at Flushing Meadows in impressive fashion and is now bidding to win his 201st match at a Grand Slam, having become the ninth man to reach 200 singles wins with victory over Moutet. The 36-year-old has an 8-3 winning record over Dimitrov but the two have not met since 2016.
Murray is currently enjoying his best season since having hip surgery and will be hoping he can advance beyond the third round of a slam for the first time since 2017. However, he must first get past this second round meeting with Dimitrov, who is back inside the top 20 in the world rankings and showed real grit and determination to come from two sets down to defeat Alex Molcan in a fifth-set tie-break.
The Bulgarian also saved two match points in that win and will now be hoping to replicate the form that saw him reach the semi-finals in New York back in 2019. Can Dimitrov put his poor record against Murray aside and reach the third round?
