    Murray smacked a serve at 141 mph.He had his doubts.Sometimes, Murray said, the
    gun can be a bit wrong, possibly.Taking 9 of 10 games at the outset, Murray
    overwhelmed Grigor Dimitrov 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 on Monday night to reach the
    quarterfinals for the 22nd time in his past 23 Grand Slam tournaments.I didnt
    give him an opportunity, once I was ahead, to let him back in the match, the No.
    2-seeded Murray said.A big part of the way he took control -- and remained in
    control -- was his serving.I served a bunch in the low 130s, mid-130s, which was
    good. I got a lot of free points with my serve tonight, Murray said. The
    conditions do a lot for you to serve quick. The balls are fast. I wanted to use
    that to my advantage as the tournament goes on. I did go up in (racket string)
    tension a little bit from the last match. Maybe that allowed me to feel like I
    was able to swing a little bit harder.As for the evenings fastest serve, which
    Murray said would be the first time hes topped 140 mph: I think that was lucky.
    I only did it once. So Im not expecting to do it again.He played well in various
    areas, certainly, but also faced little resistance from No. 22 Dimitrov, who had
    accumulated 23 unforced errors and only two winners by the time he trailed 3-0
    in the second set.Obviously, Dimitrov said, today I ran out of fuel, I think,
    physically and mentally.Murray has lost three times in 10 meetings against
    Dimitrov, whose all-court game and smooth, one-handed backhand earned him the
    nickname Baby Fed, as in Roger Federer. Dimitrovs success against Murray include
    matchups in the 2014 Wimbledon quarterfinals and in their most recent encounter,
    in May at Miami.But Murray is playing about as well as possible lately, reaching
    the final at each of his last seven tournaments prior to the U.S. Open. He has
    won 26 of his past 27 matches, including a title at Wimbledon and a second
    consecutive singles gold medal at the Olympics.Andy is the best player right now
    out there, Dimitrov said.The 2012 champion at Flushing Meadows will face No. 6
    Kei Nishikori in the quarterfinals Wednesday; the other matchup on their side of
    the draw is No. 3 Stan Wawrinka vs. 2009 U.S. Open title winner Juan Martin del
    Potro. Murray beat Nishikori in the semifinals at the Rio Games last month.The
    only time in the past six seasons that Murray failed to get at least this far at
    a major that he entered came a year ago at the U.S. Open, when he lost to Kevin
    Anderson in the fourth round.Now, though, Murray has a chance to become only the
    fourth man in the Open era to reach all four Grand Slam finals in a single
    season.He lost to No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the finals of the Australian Open in
    January and French Open in June, before winning Wimbledon for the second time in
    July.Since the professional era started in 1968, only Djokovic (2015), Roger
    Federer (2004, 2006 and 2007) and Rod Laver (1969, when he completed a
    calendar-year Grand Slam) have been to a seasons four major title
    matches.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at
