Britain’s Jamie Murray reached the third round of the men’s doubles at the US Open but compatriot Naomi Broady lost in the women’s doubles.

Murray and Brazilian Bruno Soares, champions in 2016 and fourth seeds this year, beat New Zealand’s Marcus Daniell and Dutchman Wesley Koolhof 6-3 6-4.

But Broady and American Danielle Rose Collins were beaten 6-2 7-5 by Timea Bacsinszky and Vera Zvonareva.

British hopes of success hang on the doubles after early singles exits.

Murray is also still in the mixed doubles, in which he is partnering American Bethanie Mattek-Sands, while fellow Briton Dom Inglot is in action in the men’s doubles later on Saturday.
