Murray targets US Open to nab that elusive first Major

Andy Murray is looking forward to bouncing back from his Wimbledon disappointment by challenging for the title at the US Open, which gets underway on 29 August.

The British No.1 failed to make it past the Wimbledon semi-final stage for the third time in his career last week, with Rafael Nadal proving too strong for him at the All 
England Club.

Despite the defeat, the Scot has been in good form over the past couple of months, winning the Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club and reaching the semi-finals at the French Open, as well as the Monte Carlo and Rome Masters Series tournaments.

The 24-year-old Scot said: “I’ve got Davis Cup this week then I’ve got a training block before the American stretch. Things have been going pretty well the last few months. The way they’ve been now, I’ve got a good, good chance.”

He went on to state that he will work “harder than he ever did before” to ensure he can pick up more titles in the future and beat the three players – Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer – who lie ahead of him in the 
world rankings.
