US Open 2020: Andy Murray fights back to beat Yoshihito Nishioka

Andy Murray staged a stunning comeback against Yoshihito Nishioka in the US Open first round on his long-awaited return to Grand Slam singles tennis.

The 33-year-old came from two sets and a break down against the Japanese to win 4-6 4-6 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-4) 6-4.

The Briton, whose last major singles match was at the 2019 Australian Open before career-saving hip surgery, started flat and dispirited.

But he found his fight and saved a match point to set up an epic win.

The Scot, who eventually claimed victory in four hours 39 minutes, will face Canadian 15th seed Felix Auger-Aliassime in the second round.
