Murray has won three Grand Slam singles titles, two at Wimbledon (2013 and 2016) and one at the US Open (2012), and has reached eleven major finals.
Also Murray was ranked in the top 10 for all but one month from July 2008 through October 2017, and was no lower than world No. 4 in eight of the nine year-end rankings during that span. Murray has won 46 ATP singles titles, including 14 Masters 1000 events.
Andy Murray won his first hardcourt match of the summer on Monday, defeating Stan Wawrinka 7-6 (7/3), 5-7, 7-5 in the opening round of the ATP/WTA Cincinnati Masters.
The 35-year-old Scot was facing his 37-year-old Swiss rival for the 22nd time with both treble Grand Slam champions still coming back to full form after long-term injuries over the past few seasons.
Murray lost in the first round at Washington and last week in Montreal while Wawrinka’s last win came on grass two months ago at Queen’s Club, London; he has not won on cement since the Australian Open last year.
Murray needed four match points to advance at a tournament he has won twice, in 2008 and 2011. The veteran was competing here for the 17th time.
“We’re not young anymore,” Murray said. “Both of us gave our best right until the end.
“Matches like this are a lot tougher than when we were in our mid-20s.
“Both of us love this sport, we’ve had our issues with injuries the last few years.
Cameron Norrie edged out fellow Brit Andy Murray 3-6 6-3 6-4 at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.
The Davis Cup team-mates had only faced each other once before on Tour back in 2019 and went toe-to-toe for the majority of the match, before Murray suffered with cramp in his quad late in the third set.
After being broken at 4-4 in the final set, Murray received treatment from the physio at the changeover. He put Norrie under significant pressure in the next game, but the British No 1 held firm to hold on and clinch victory.
Following the match, Murray continued to suffer significant pain in his quad and needed further treatment to just try and walk off the court.
Norrie will take on the American wildcard Ben Shelton, who beat fifth seed Casper Ruud 6-3 6-3, in the next round.
