Dunblane survivor Andrew Murray underlined his status as the natural British successor to Tim Henman among the world's elite by capturing the US Open boys' title.

The 17-year-old Scot became the first ever British winner of the event and joined several of the sport's biggest names on the list of champions.

In previous years, the title which Murray now owns has been claimed by Pat Cash, Stefan Edberg, Marcelo Rios and Andy Roddick. Roger Federer and Boris Becker were both runners-up in the early stages of their careers.

And Murray, who is about to embark on a full-time professional career, will now aim to follow the lead of such luminaries by making an impact on the ATP Tour.

He overwhelmed Ukrainian Sergei Stakhovsky to post a 6-4 6-2 victory in Sunday's final.
