ANDY MURRAY will open his North American campaign against Teymuraz Gabashvili at the Citi Open in Washington DC later this week after the Russian beat German Benjamin Becker in round one. As the tournament's No.1 seed, Murray was given a bye through to the last 16.

The Scot and Canada's Daniel Nestor were beaten in the doubles late on Monday night in Murray's first match since his Davis Cup heroics against France.

Andy's brother Jamie and Australian John Peers, the winners in Hamburg on Sunday, are also in Washington but have drawn the world's top pairing, Florida twins Bob and Mike Bryan, who claimed their 107th ATP title in Atlanta last weekend.

Scot Jocelyn Rae and Surrey's Anna Smith face wild cards Louisa Chirico and Alize Lim in the ladies doubles.
