Andy Murray got his 200th Grand Slam tournament victory at the 2023 US Open, reaching a milestone that only Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have achieved, thanks to his straight sets victory against Corentin Moutet.

The victory made Murray the eighth male player in the Open Era to achieve 200 Grand Slam match wins. In this special list there are: Roger Federer (369), Novak Djokovic (355), Rafael Nadal (314), Jimmy Connors (233), Andre Agassi (224), Ivan Lendl (222) and Pete Sampras (203).

The British tennis player explained in the press conference after the match: "Sometimes I simply talk to my team, other times I vent my anger. Compared to before, it's now easier to communicate with the box and receive certain feedback, it wasn't like this before.

Now it's easier for the team there is no doubt about that. I think I did very well, Moutet is a very skilled guy who offers a totally different style of tennis compared to the other athletes on the circuit. When these are matches it's better not to prolong and I'm happy to have closed the match in three sets.

I don't know how it should work, to me the bounce of the ball twice on the ground seemed clear enough while the referees saw it around ten times and I don't know how it works. I still don't understand the use of technology, it was a key moment in the match and a different treatment would be better for the next few times.

Dimitrov? I've played several times with tennis players who had former coaches of mine but in the end it doesn't change much. Maybe he doesn't give you technical indications but in the end it's difficult to do everything once you're on the court.

Isner? I've said it several times, Isner has the best serve in the history of tennis. He has a great technique and can do what he wants with both first and second; he and Ivo Karlovic were quite similar, not just in height.

John also prefers to stay in the baseline while Karlovic tended to go for the net more often, but what I know is that it was always a disaster when you had to face them. But I often played well against Isner, but I didn't like him."
