Andy Murray beat Spain's Marcel Granollers to reach the third round of the US Open as rain hammered down on the new roof above Arthur Ashe Stadium.

The Briton, seeded second, won 6-4 6-1 6-4 as a storm passed over New York, suspending play on the outside courts.

Murray goes on to face Frenchman Gilles Simon or Paolo Lorenzi of Italy in the last 32 on Saturday.
