Former champion Andy Murray will play Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka in the first round of the behind-closed-doors US Open at Flushing Meadows in New York. British number one Johanna Konta plays her compatriot Heather Watson, while Kyle Edmund could face men’s top seed Novak Djokovic in round two. The Grand Slam starts on Monday – but without a host of star names. There are no qualifying rounds or mixed doubles, with the men’s and women’s doubles reduced to 32 teams and the wheelchair events taking place after initially being omitted by the USTA.
