Nick Matthew Beats Campbell Grayson To Reach US Open Quarter-Finals

"He's one of those players who can keep going at the same level for two hours," said Matthew. "So I knew I had to get on top from the start and I was pleased with how I did that, but he was still going strong at the end.

"Maybe I let my opponent off the hook a little in the last round, and it became a tough match, so I wanted to make sure that didn't happen again."

Matthew will face compatriot Peter Barker for a place in the quarter-finals.
