Andy Murray waits out the rain, then hits the shot of the day at the U.S. Open

NEW YORK -- Andy Murray didn't take the court for his first-round match at the U.S. Open against Michael Llodra until well after 9:30 p.m. due to a rain-delayed Day 3 that pushed the day session well into the night. But once he finally got on court, it didn't take him long to get going.

In the fourth point of the match, Murray and Llodra showed off their quick reflexes in a nine-shot exchange at the net. Murray ended the point by ripping an overhead backhand smash winner.
