New York - Former champion Andy Murray was drawn to face controversial Australian Nick Kyrgios in the first round of the US Open.

Kyrgios, 20, was handed a suspended ban and fine this week for his lurid verbal attack on Stan Wawrinka at the Montreal Masters.

World No 37 Kyrgios triggered widespread revulsion for his on-court taunt that fellow Aussie Thanasi Kokkinakis had had a fling with WTA professional Donna Vekic, reportedly the girlfriend of Wawrinka.

Murray, the 2012 US Open champion, has a 3-0 lead over Kyrgios including wins at this year's Australian and French Open tournaments.
