2012 U.S. Open Scores: Andy Murray Breezes Into Quarterfinals

Andy Murray moved into the quarterfinals of the 2012 U.S. Open with a straight-set victory over Canadian Milos Raonic at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Monday night. The match was moved up to 7 p.m. ET to avoid inclement weather predicted in the New York City area.

Murray, the men's No. 3, was dominant on his serve as he did not face a break point in the entire match. He moves on to face 12th-seeded Marin Cilic of Croatia. Cilic advanced with a victory over Martin Klizan.

The result from Murray on Monday keeps open the possibility of a rematch of the Wimbledon final with Roger Federer in the semifinals. Federer advanced in a walkover after Mardy Fish withdrew from the tournament on Monday.

U.S. Open 2012 Scores: Roberta Vinci Upsets Agnieszka Radwanska

World No. 20 Roberta Vinci upset second-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska, 6-1, 6-4, on Monday afternoon to advance to the quarterfinals of the 2012 U.S. Open. It's the furthest that the Italian has ever advanced in singles at a major tournament.

Radwanska didn't look nearly as strong on Monday after beating former world No. 1 Jelena Jankovic on Saturday to advance to the fourth round. She struggled to put away points quickly against Vinci, who was able to convert significantly more winners.

Vinci was especially good early, dominating the first set before taking a 3-1 lead in the second set. Radwanska was able to fight for a second-set rally to tie things up at four games apiece, but Vinci finished strong to complete her first-ever victory over the No. 2 player in the world.

Mardy Fish Withdraws From U.S. Open Due To Heart Problems

American Mardy Fish has withdrawn from the 2012 U.S. Open on Monday because of heart palpitations following his Sunday victory over Gilles Simon, according to tennis writer Tom Tebbutt.

The No. 23 seed Fish was set to take on No. 1 seed Roger Federer at Arthur Ashe Stadium later this afternoon. Now, Federer, the top-ranked player in the world, advances to the quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows. He will play the winner of No. 6 seed Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic and No. 11 seed Nicolas Almagro of Spain.

Fish, 30, was kept off the courts earlier this year due to heart problems. He was pulled out of the Davis Cup and then became hospitalized because of heart arrhythmia. He underwent a two-hour procedure in May called cardiac catheter ablation to correct the electrophysiology of his heart, and his doctors said then that his heart problems were not expected to reoccur.

U.S. Open 2012 Tennis Scores: John Isner Falls In 5 Sets

John Isner had to wait through a lengthy rain delay before even taking the court Sunday night at Arthur Ashe Stadium for his match with Philipp Kohlschreiber. But his eventual five-set defeat probably magnified the pain of the wait.

The No. 19 seed German won a tight first set, 6-4, by winning the only break point he had. Isner was sharper in the second set, winning 6-3 in just 37 minutes and collecting five aces.

In set three, Isner was able to break Kohlschreiber in the decisive game to win 6-4, converting the last of three break points to go up two sets to one.

But Kohlschreiber battled back for a 6-3 win in the fourth set, and endured a 55-minute final set that ended 6-4 in his favor to move on to the round of 16, his third appearance in the round of 16 in a Grand Slam event in 2012.

U.S. Open Tennis Bracket 2012: Roger Federer, Andy Roddick Highlight Round of 16 Action

Roger Federer once again highlights the men's action in the U.S. Open, with the top-seeded player taking on American Mardy Fish in the Men's Round of 16 set to begin on Monday.

The highlight of the round will likely be Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro taking on No. 20 Andy Roddick, who will hope to stave off his retirement for one more round against the No. 8 seed. The winner of that match will face the winner of No. 2 Novak Djokovic and No. 18 Stanislas Wawrinka in the quarterfinals.

No. 11 Nicolas Almagro of Spain will face No. 6 Tomas Berdych of Czechoslovakia, with the winner playing the victor of Federer-Fish.

No. 3 Andy Murray will take on Canada's Milos Raonic, No. 15 in the tournament, with the winner either No. 12 Marin Cilic of Croatia or Slovakia's Martin Klizan, who upset No. 32 Jeremy Chardy on Sunday.

Phillip Kohlschreiber, who defeated John Isner in the wee hours on Sunday night, draws No. 9 Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia. No. 4 David Ferrer, who overcame a sloppy performance to defeat Lleyton Hewitt in the third round, will take on No. 13 Richard Gasquet of France. The winners of those two matches will meet in the quarters.

Full schedule for the Round of 16 can be found at the U.S. Open's website.
