Andy Murray Reaches 200 Major Wins…9th in History

Andy Murray (36, Great Britain-World No. 37) has reached 200 career wins at major tournaments.

Murray defeated Corentin Moutet (24-FR – 72nd) 3-0 (6-2, 7-5, 6-3) in the first round of the 2023 US Open on Tuesday. With the victory, Murray, who won the first round of Wimbledon this year, reached 199 wins (54 losses) in Grand Slams. Only nine other players in men’s tennis have done so.

Prior to the US Open, Murray’s health was a concern, as he withdrew from the Canadian Open third round (Round of 16) against Yannick Saina (22-Italy-6th) on Nov. 11 with a torn abdominal muscle, and then missed the Cincinnati Open. On this day, however, Murray continued her aggressive net play and showed no signs of injury.

After reaching 200 career wins, Murray said, “It hasn’t been an easy journey. I had to withdraw from the Canadian Open and missed the Cincinnati Open, so the preparation for the (US Open) was not easy. It took me a while to get my serve right.” 카지노

The most decorated male player of all time is Roger Federer (42-Swiss), who retired last year, with 369 career wins. He is followed by Novak Djokovic (36, Serbia, No. 2) with 355 and Rafael Nadal (37, Spain, No. 39) with 314. The Federer-Djokovic-Nadal “Big Three” are the only players in men’s tennis to join the 300-win club.

Currently the highest-ranked player since undergoing hip surgery in January 2019, Murray will attempt to reach 201 career wins on September 1 against Grigor Dimitrov (32-Bulgaria-19). With three more wins, he will surpass Pete Sampras (203) in career major wins. However, Murray hasn’t advanced past the fourth round (round of 16) at a major since his 2017 Wimbledon semifinal exit.
