Andy Murray rooting for an amazing 2016



Andy Murray has cited his clear intentions on improving upon not only his game but his single’s world ranking as well, as he prepares for the start of the Australian Open, scheduled next week. The Briton said, “I’ve been close many times and that’s my number one goal”, hinting at his immediate priority. “I won the gold in London four years ago so try to defend that is another big goal for me. They would be the two main ones”.

Andy Murray has started the year on a highly positive note, beating Rafael Nadal in straight sets at the Qatar Open last week. “You have to just keep trying to learn, watch his matches, see if there are any weaknesses you can capitalise on”, said Murray. Andy is currently eying to perform well at the first, out of the four major Tennis Grand Slams of the year, at Australia.

Andy Murray has lost the Australian Open finals to Novak on the hard courts of Australia three years, 2011, 2013 and 2015 and once to Roger Federer back in 2010.

Andy has also mentioned that he will be leaving Melbourne any time required, to return to his wife who is expected to have their first baby sometime soon. He has clearly stated that his baby will be his number one priority. Adding to that, he said, “I’m looking forward to it, it’s exciting. It’s going to be a challenge but hopefully I can be a good dad”.

Murray is also hopeful that his baby will have a positive effect on his mind set and game. A lot of players travel with their families and kids. Novak had a child last year which translated into a mind-blowing performance for him, throughout the 2015 season. Roger Federer also travels with his family which recently extended into two set of twins.
