Top stars continue to march in the U-S Open tennis grand slam. Britain's Andy Murray and defending women's champion Kim Clijsters shared the spotlight in the latest action at Flushing Meadows.

Murray ended a briefly rain-delayed opening set against 123rd-ranked Dustin Brown. The Jamaican rallied with Murray in the opening set, tying it at 3-all with this forehand.

The two players staged a neck-and-neck rally midway through the set. But the Scotsman emerged the strongest.

He executed a nice volley to thrill the New York City crowd. Murray took the first set 7-5.

The Jamaican could not gather any momentum in the following sets. Murray took control and cruised to a 7-5, 6-3, 6-0 victory in a 85 minutes.

Number 18 seed John Isner is the highest ranked American left in the men's draw. He also progressed to the third round by dispatching Switzerland's Marco Chiudinelli.
