Andy Murray, who turns 30 on Monday, says he is “not massively into birthdays”.

And that may be no bad thing given the difficulty players have found in winning Grand Slams in their thirties.

Only four men have managed to do so this century: Pete Sampras at the US Open of 2002; Andre Agassi, twice in three years, at the Australian Open; Stan Wawrinka at the 2015 French Open and last year’s US Open; and Roger Federer, who won his 7th Wimbledon title at the age of 30 and then so memorably walked away with this year’s Australian Open at the age of 35.
