Murray overwhelms Young in Davis Cup opener
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Wimbledon champion Andy Murray overwhelmed Donald Young 6-1, 6-2, 6-3 Friday to give Britain a 1-0 lead over the United States in the first round of the Davis Cup.
The World Group series is being played on a temporary red clay court in left field of Petco Park, the home of baseball's San Diego Padres.
Murray was barely challenged by Young. The two-time Grand Slam winner took leads of 5-0 in the first set and 5-1 in the second set.
Young never broke serve but took the sixth game of the third set to four deuces before the British star had an ace and then won when Young netted a backhand.
Sam Querrey of the U.S. faces James Ward in the second match of the best-of-five series.
