But daughter Edie has done her dad no favours by busting his nose less than 24 hours before show time.

Father-of-two Murray, 31, uploaded a picture of himself nursing a bloody nose with a tissue, captioned: "When playing with your 10 month old daughter gets a bit too physical!"

Roger Federer famously underwent knee surgery after injuring himself running a BATH for his twin daughters.

Two-time Wimbledon winner Murray – also a father to two-year-old Sophia – will be hoping tonight's tie with Verdasco is not too physical having just returned from a serious hip injury.

Searing 36C heat has turned Flushing Meadows into a sweat bath, causing fans to faint, five players to retire and Novac Djokovic to take an on-court ice-bath.

But Muzza is combating the extreme temperatures by devouring huge helpings of sushi, eggs and bacon.

Speaking after his win against Australian Duckworth, he said: "I’ve lost a lot of matches out here over the years. I’ve struggled on this court, but it’s like a new beginning.

"It’s beautiful. It’s a little bit more sheltered.

"The sun went behind this bit of the roof, which was probably nice for everyone watching as well as the players.

"It was beautiful and a great atmosphere for the first day of the tournament. I’m very happy to be back.”
