Day four of the US Open features a host of British interest, which includes a tasty second-round showdown between three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray and former world number three Grigor Dimitrov.
While a rejuvenated Murray holds strong claims, fellow Brit Jack Draper could struggle in his clash with Polish world number 17 Hubert Hurkacz.

Matteo Berrettini to beat Arthur Rinderknech @ 1/5
Matteo Berrettini did a job on Ugo Humbert in the opening round in New York, winning 6-4 6-2 6-2, and the Italian should have the measure of another Frenchman in Arthur Rinderknech.
Berrettini, a former Grand Slam runner-up having played second fiddle to Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon in 2021, has made back-to-back quarter-finals at Flushing Meadows and is a class above world number 73 Rinderknech.
Hubert Hurkacz to beat Jack Draper @ 8/15
Hubert Hurkacz survived an almighty scare as he came from two sets down to overcome Marc-Andrea Huesler in round one, but that may ensure the Pole is more focused on the challenge of rising British star Jack Draper.
Prior to the US Open, Hurkacz made the semi-final in Cincinnati, where he took Carlos Alcaraz to a deciding set following wins over Borna Coric and Stefanos Tsitsipas, and he has won both previous meetings with Draper.
Sebastian Baez to beat Felipe Meligeni Alves @ 2/9
This should be a straightforward task for up-and-coming Argentinian talent Sebastian Baez, who is performing at the top of his game.
Baez claimed two pieces of silverware in a row in Kitzbuhel and Winston Salem prior to heading to the US Open, and he stretched his winning run to 11 matches with an emphatic straight-set victory over world number 23 Borna Coric in the first round.
Andrey Rublev to beat Gael Monfils @ 8/15
Gael Monfils is back playing some good stuff, but the French veteran is still likely to be found wanting against world number eight Andrey Rublev.
The Russian seed is a model of consistency in Grand Slam events, having made the quarter-final in four of his last six major starts, and he was a straight-set winner when these two last met.
Marie Bouzkova to beat Petra Martic @ 4/7
Marie Bouzkova has had a strong summer, building on her run to the fourth round at Wimbledon with a last-16 appearance in Montreal and a quarter-final effort in Cincinnati.
The Czech talent made light work of Ashlyn Krueger in the first round of her US Open adventure, and she should have the beating of Petra Martic, a player she outclassed 6-4 6-2 in their only previous hard-court encounter.
Madison Keys to beat Yanina Wickmayer @ 2/11
Madison Keys finished runner-up at the US Open in 2017, and after a few quiet campaigns, the American ace appears to be back operating at the peak of her powers.
Keys was a quarter-finalist at Wimbledon last month, and the manner of her 6-2 6-2 win over Arantxa Rus in round one suggests she should be too talented for Yanina Wickmayer.
