Murray to start US Open title defence with first-round match against Michael Llodra

London, Aug 23 (ANI): Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has reportedly been drawn to play Frenchman Michael Llodra in the first round of the US Open.

According to the Mirror, Murray will reportedly not face world number one Novak Djokovic in the finals at the US Open as he has been placed in the same side of the draw with the Serbian ace.

The report further said that with Murray and Djokovic being placed in the same side of the draw, there can be no repeat of last year's Flushing Meadows final or the recent Wimbledon final between the two, both of which were won by the Scot.
