Murray, the sixth seed, set up a last-eight meeting with 19th seed Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina after wrapping up the win in 109 minutes in his first appearance under lights at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Victory also earned Murray the world number five ranking following fourth-ranked David Ferrer’s third-round exit at the weekend and the Scot got there in style, steamrollering past his rival with only 15 unforced errors.
The 21-year-old showed little sign that he had been involved in a five-set thriller with Jurgen Melzer of Austria just 48 hours earlier.
