Andy Murray has become just the fifth active tennis player to complete 600 match wins after going through to the quarter-finals of the Cincinnati Masters on Thursday.

The top-seeded Murray pulled off a routine 6-3 6-2 victory against South Africa’s Kevin Anderson to join the elite list that comprises the likes of Roger Federer (1080), Rafael Nadal (801), Novak Djokovic (737), and David Ferrer (683) among the others.

“It’s cool that it happened in Cincinnati, the first [Masters] tournament I’ve ever played in,” the 29-year-old was quoted as saying by “I got a wild card here when I was 18. I also won my first Masters 1000 here, so it’s a place that means a lot to me.”

Interestingly, the second-ranked Murray also extended his winning streak to 20 matches, which encompasses the Wimbledon crown and the Olympic gold that he won lately.

The Brit will look to subsist his winning spree when he squares-off against Australia’s Bernard Tomic for a place in the last-four stage here.
