However, Danish former world number one Caroline Wozniacki was humbled by Ukrainian teenager Dayana Yastremska in straight sets, 4-6, 4-6.

Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray was beaten 6-4, 6-4 by Richard Gasquet on Monday in his return to singles competition in Cincinnati following a seven-month hip injury lay-off. "We were hoping to maybe hold a wild card until a little bit closer to the time to see how I feel and get some matches hopefully and a bit of practice", Murray said.

The Frenchman controlled play from the first serve, pushing Murray from side to side and front to back as he mixed in drop shots with backhand drives.

A two time victor of the tournament, Murray double-faulted and Frenchman Gasquet, who returned himself in May from groin problems, was quickly 2-0 up.

A two time victor of the tournament, a nervous Murray double-faulted and was broken in the opening game.

"I don't know who I'm going to play doubles or mixed with there". "I thought it (being away) would maybe change my perspective completely on things but I am sitting here disappointed which I think is probably a good thing if i want to get back to playing at a high level".

"I was having to move quite a lot laterally, and I didn't move forward particularly well".

The 32-year-old confirmed that he still has some ways to go before returning to his top fitness and will limit his singles activity as he continues to recover from hip resurfacing surgery in January.

"When he drop-shotted, there was a few times I didn't even run to the ball, didn't react to it, and that's nothing to do with my hip".

"The way to get that back is by playing matches".

Andy Murray moved well in his first singles match since January, but not well enough to move on - even to the U.S. Open.

Cilic lost to Radu Albot 6-4, 7-6 (8/6). Kyrgios will face eighth-seeded Karen Khachanov.

The British number one, who was seeded 14, was on the ropes after losing the first set 6-3, but from 2-2 in the second, reeled off three successive games and then closed it out 6-3 with Peterson wilting.

Also, 14th-seeded Johanna Konta was upset by qualifier Rebecca Peterson 6-3, 3-6, 7-5.

In the women's draw at the ATP-WTA event, Venus Williams reached the second round with a 7-5, 6-2 victory over American compatriot Lauren Davis.
