Andy Murray says that, career-wise, he doesn’t yet belong in the same sentence with Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic. Murray won his first major at the 2012 U.S. Open, while Federer has won 17 Grand Slam titles, Nadal has 11, and Djokovic has five.

“If you look at their careers as a whole, then no, I wouldn’t be,” Murray told the media at the Abu Dhabi exhibition. “But the thing with sport is that it is not relevant what happened seven, eight years ago. Right now, I am playing at that level to compete with them. The last few months have been very good, but I need to maintain that.”
