at No. 7.
Murray Is Coming To New York As The Defending
long as Andy Murray has been traveling the tennis circuit, be it as a
wide-eyed junior or now as the defending champion of the US Open, his
favorite port of call has always been New York. And though not a
creature of habit, he hopes things are pretty much the same as usual in
the Big Apple this year.

John Isner officially withdrew from the Winston-Salem Open in
Winston-Salem, N.C., due to a hip injury. Isner was the only player who
could have overtaken Nadal in the Emirates Airline US Open Series
Serena Williams clinched the 2013 Emirates Airline
US Open Series women’s title on Saturday by defeating China’s Li Na in
the semifinals of the Western & Southern Open.

seeds withdrew before the start, leaving Italy's Andreas Seppi to the
field in the last ATP tournament prior to Monday's start of the US Open.
Cincinnati finalist John Isner, a local boy, and Czech Tomas Berdych, a
Cincinnati semi-finalist who put out Andy Murray before losing to Rafael
Nadal, both citing injuries.
