Robson reaches US Open third round

British number one Laura Robson beat France's Caroline Garcia 6-4 7-6 (7-5) to reach the third round of the US Open.

Robson needed a medical timeout to have her wrist re-strapped after winning the first set.

The 19-year-old then fought back from two set points down to force a tie-break and seal the match.

Robson, who reached the last 16 at Flushing Meadows in 2012, will meet China's Li Na in the third round.
