Andy Murray is only the fifth active player to record 600 match wins.

Murray Surges To 600 Match Wins

ATPWorldTour.com pays tribute to Andy Murray, who has recorded his 600th match win.

Andy Murray's surge from 500 to 600 victories in just 116 matches for today’s milestone win, secured against Kevin Anderson at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati, is testament to his dedication, technical ability, agility and mind-body awareness.

The 24th player in ATP World Tour history to attain 600 match wins, is currently the in-form player with a 36-3 match record since 11 April, including a current career-best 20-match winning streak. He has captured four titles - the Internazionali BNL d'Italia, Aegon Championships, Wimbledon and Rio Olympics gold medal - from six finals (Mutua Madrid Open, Roland Garros).

Murray's reunion with Ivan Lendl in mid-June has provided a psychological boost; a mentor that not only knows how to win, but how to prepare for and negotiate tricky situations in big matches. Aided by his good friend Jamie Delgado, Murray’s rich form ensures that he looks set to challenge Novak Djokovic for year-end No. 1 in the Emirates ATP Rankings.

An increasingly popular champion worldwide, Murray continues to inspire and change the perception and status of tennis in Great Britain as one of its best known sports stars. Today, he has added to his legacy.
