And the draw just peels away for Federer. He wins by complete walkover as Fish pulls out with health concerns. Andy is definitely up against it in NYC Sad

Yes as if Federer's draw wasn't easy as it was he gets another help and hand on his way. Hopefully, it is nothing heart-related with Fish though. I don't think it really makes a great deal of difference as Fed would have won but it helps to keep him fresh.

As for Andy Murray tonight this is a big game for him. It is a match-up against a monster server and a player tipped to be a star of the future. That being the case it is pretty important that Andy lets this young pup know who is boss. It is not the sort of player I want Andy to lose against as he strikes me as a one-dimensional-type player as in all-serve and booming forehand and nothing else.

Should Murray progress it looks like he will play Marin Cilic who is leading Martin Klizan 7-5 6-4 at the moment. Klizan making him work for it though.

With that rain impending rumour has it the match has perhaps been brought forward to Midnight (UK time) in a bid to get the match completed before the forecasted rain sweeps in. Best of luck Andy.

Not before 12.30am (7.30 local) per the revised schedule. I might try to stay awake if I can find a working livestream.

I'll probably stay up nopw as it isn't worth going to sleep for an hour. I'll be watching it (hopefully weather permitting) to its completion on Sky via my Virgin Media Tivo box.

Poor service game from Andy, nets forehand into net 0-15, pushes a forehand wide of tramlines 0-30, better serve and forehand wins him point 15-30, an ace and 30-30, on second serve he forces Raonic to net 40-30 and Murray holds....just. 3-3

Better from Andy. Great pass helps him to 30-30 and another dipping shot gives him a break point. Tame return from Andy and Raonic hits the winner....deuce. Great rally and long one won by Raonic though and he has advantage. Serve and volley to win. Raonic leads 4-3.

And Murray takes the first set with a high bouncing serve that Raonic can't return. Murray takes the first set 6-4 in 36 minutes.

So far so good Murray fans.
