NEW YORK (AP) - Andy Murray has won the U.S. Open in five grueling sets to become the first British man since 1936 to capture a Grand Slam title.

Murray beat defending champion Novak Djokovic 7-6 (10), 7-5, 2-6, 3-6, 6-2 on Monday in his fifth try in the final of a major tournament.

The 25-year-old Scot was reeling going into the decisive set after Djokovic rallied from two sets down to even the match. But Murray broke the Serb's serve in the first game, then broke again to go up 3-0.

When it was finally over after a record 4 hours, 54 minutes full of long, scintillating rallies, Murray crouched to the court with both hands over his face.

Fred Perry won Britain's last Grand Slam men's title 76 years ago at the U.S. Championships, the Open's predecessor.

BALTIMORE (AP) - Joe Flacco threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns, Ed Reed took an interception 34 yards for a score, and the Baltimore Ravens beat the Cincinnati Bengals 44-13 on Monday night for their 11th straight win at home.

Baltimore's high-powered, no-huddle offense also produced two short touchdown runs by Ray Rice. After letting an early 14-point lead dwindle to 17-13, the Ravens pulled away by scoring 24 straight points in just over six minutes.

Flacco watched the final eight minutes of the blowout on the sideline after going 21 for 29 in Baltimore's ninth consecutive victory in the AFC North. The Ravens were the only team in the division to win the opener.

And while the offense certainly was impressive, Baltimore's defense also excelled in its first game under coordinator Dean Pees. Playing without injured NFL Defensive Player of the Year Terrell Suggs, who had 14 sacks last year, the Ravens dropped Andy Dalton four times.
