Olympic champion reaches US Open quarterfinals
Still seeking his first Grand Slam title, Olympic champion Andy Murray reached the quarterfinals at an eighth consecutive major tournament by beating 15th-seeded Milos Raonic 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 Monday night.
The third-seeded Murray converted 4 of 12 break points and never faced one.
Murray, the 2008 U.S. Open runner-up, and his coach, Ivan Lendl, are the only men to lose their first four major finals.
Next for Murray is a match against No. 12 Marin Cilic. Murray leads their head-to-head series 6-1, but his only loss to Cilic came at Flushing Meadows in the fourth round in 2009.
Raonic was trying to become the first Canadian man in a Grand Slam quarterfinal in the Open era, which began in 1968.
