Murray on course for Nadal semi

TENNIS: Britain’s Andy Murray has been drawn in the same half of the draw as Rafael Nadal at the US Open, meaning they are on course to meet for the fourth grand slam in succession. First, however, Murray will have to see off Indian No64 Somdev Devvarman, his opponent in round one. Robin Soderling is Murray’s scheduled quarter-final opponent in New York. On the other side of the draw, top seed Novak Djokovic is on course for a last-four meeting with Roger Federer. World No1 Djokovic plays a qualifier first while Federer meets Santiago Giraldo.
