The main matches on Wednesday at the 2012 U.S. Open were almost entirely non-competitive. Andy Murray won in straight sets, dispatching Ivan Dodig of Croatia, 6-2, 6-1, 6-3. Murray lost the first game of the match, but then broke back twice to take a 4-1 lead, and he never looked back from there. Murray won six of his nine break points to really put a stranglehold on the match and ensure a routine finish.
Maria Sharapova was even more dominant in her matchup with Lourdes Dominguez Lino of Spain, winning 6-0, 6-1 in just under an hour of action. Sharapova never let up on her serve and went right to attacking Lino. It was a dominating performance, with Sharapova piling on 30 winners to Lino's zero.
In other action, Victoria Azarenka breezed through the second round with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Kirsten Flipkens. David Ferrer knocked over Kevin Anderson in straight sets. John Isner struggled through two tiebreaks, but won both to advance.
