#Canadian #Tennis player #Auger-#Aliassime makes statement with three-set win over #Murray

NEW YORK — There would be no valiant comeback from a two-set deficit for Andy Murray this time.

His weary body — and the Canadian kid on the other side of the net — simply wouldn’t allow it.

Murray, the three-time Grand Slam champion still working his way back from a pair of hip operations, was beaten in the second round of the U.S. Open by Felix Auger-Aliassime 6-2, 6-3, 6-4 on Thursday night.

“I need to build up my body and my conditioning,” Murray said.
