World number four Andy Murray believes that he would have won a Grand Slam title if he had played in a different era.

Andy Murray believes that he would have broken his Grand Slam duck had he have been playing in a different era.

The 25-year-old is widely considered to be one of the best players of all time never to have won a Grand Slam title - thanks largely to the presence of Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.

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.
