Andy Murray believes that he would have broken his Grand Slam duck had he have been playing in a different era.
With that in mind, the Brit has admitted that he would have won more personal accolades in previous years.
"If they weren't there, then there would be more chance for me to win major tournaments," Murray said. "But I think I've improved as a player because I'm competing against them as well.
"You know, if you look at it purely on how much people have won, then, yeah, I would obviously rather be in a different era.
"But I think I'm playing better tennis than some guys may have in the past because I've had a chance to compete with them, play at this level, against those guys."
Murray is currently competing at the US Open.
