Johannesburg, Aug.25 (ANI): Newly-crowned Olympic gold medallist Andy Murray has said he is playing the best tennis of his career at the moment and is confident of clinching his second U.S. Open title.

After losing the French Open final to Novak Djokovic, Murray went on to win the Queen's Club tournament and his second Wimbledon title before successfully defending his Olympic crown at Rio de Janiero.

Murray's career-best 22-match winning streak came to a halt when Croatia's Marin Cilic defeated him in last week's Cincinnati final,Sport24 reported.

The 29-year-old is the first British man in 76 years to win a Grand Slam title.

The fourth and the final Grand Slam of the season, the U.S.Open, is slated to be held from August 29 to September 11 in New York. (ANI)
