Murray is ready for Chardy

Have your say

ANDY MURRAY will face unseeded Frenchman Jeremy Chardy for a place in the Cincinnati Masters quarter-finals early this evening.

The Scot secured his tie with Chardy after defeating American wildcard Sam Querrey in straightforward fashion, not losing his serve once in a 6/2, 6/4 win.

Rafael Nadal, meanwhile, has been forced to pull out of the US Open, which begins on August 27. He has been suffering from tendonitis in his knees.
