31st August 2011, Comments 0 comments

Dutch tennis star Robin Haase made a convincing advance to the second round of the US Open on Wednesday. Within half an hour, he overtook Portugal’s Rui Machado in three sets: 6-0, 6-4, 6-4.

“It was pretty simple. I hit sure at the beginning and he made some mistakes. I cruised right through,” Haase said.

The second round may be less of a breeze for the 24-year-old as he will likely face Scotland’s Andy Murray. “That’s obviously a competitive match. He’s in good shape, but I can certainly make it difficult,” he said.
