MURRAY WANTS GRAND SLAM

Top British tennis player Andy Murray is hungry for a Grand Slam success this season and is willing to go to any extent to fulfill his Grand Slam ambitions and become the first British player to win a Major title in singles in the last few decades.

Murray has always faced criticism from the media and former players in his homeland for not getting his hands on the coveted Grand Slam title despite being in the top five in the ATP world rankings for the last few years on a consistent basis.

Murray even lost in three Grand Slam finals and has almost become the ‘nearly man’ of world tennis for reaching three finals and semi finals of the Major events without winning a single title. He even appointed former Grand Slam winner Ivan Lendl ahead of the Australian Open last December with the aim to improve his game and according to the world number four, the former world number one has already improved his game drastically with his approach.

Speaking to the media about the impact of Ivan Lendl, Andy Murray said that they only had five days ahead of the first Grand Slam of the year and in spite of the little time span, he helped a lot in his techniques and approach. One thing that Murray has in common with the Czech Maestro is that Lendl lost his first four Grand Slam finals before he turned it around to win eight Major titles in his career and Murray hopes that Lendl will be able to help him psychologically about his mindset in the final of a Major event.

It now waits to be seen whether Andy Murray can reach the heights that were expected of him when he burst on to the scene as a fresh youngster almost 6 years back now.
