US Open 2015: Andy Murray to face Nick Kyrgios in first round

Britain’s Andy Murray has been drawn against controversial Australian Nick Kyrgios in the first round of the US Open, which begins on Monday.

The 28-year-old has played Kyrgios twice in Grand Slams this year, winning in straight sets at both the Australian and French Opens.

World number 37 Kyrgios, 20, was fined $10,000 this month for an “insulting remark” to Stan Wawrinka.

Top seed Novak Djokovic takes on Joao Souza of Brazil in New York.

Women’s defending champion Serena Williams, who is aiming to complete a calendar Grand Slam, will play Russian Vitalia Diatchenko, while men’s defending champion Marin Cilic will face a qualifier.

Murray could face French Open champion Wawrinka in the quarter-finals and second seed Roger Federer in the semis.
