Murray issues clay target

February 05, 2013 13:51:52 UK
Andy Murray is looking to improve his record on the clay courts this year.

Andy Murray has vowed to try and improve his clay-court game in the build up to the French Open, but Wimbledon remains his ultimate target in 2013.

The British number one finally ended his wait for a first grand slam title at last year's US Open, while he also picked up the Olympic gold medal at Wimbledon during last summer's London Games.

For me, clay's been a surface I've struggled on and my results on clay haven't been as good as on the other surfaces, so to be able to do that would be one of my best achievements.

Murray has since reached the Australian Open final in Melbourne, where he lost out to Novak Djokovic last month, but his best achievement at the French Open is a semi-final spot when he was defeated by Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros in 2011.

The Scot is now looking to vastly improve on clay this year with a view to challenging for the title, although he is desperate to win on home soil at the All England Club having lost out to Roger Federer last year.

Murray is 1213.00 to win the French Open and can be backed at 4.00 to win at Wimbledon.

Don't forget all of the fantastic markets we have to offer, including In-Play betting, can be accessed on your mobile phone and tablet with the new and improved bet365 On The Move.

"I'm preparing as best as possible for [the French Open], but when Wimbledon comes round it is obviously the big goal of all of the players during the year," Murray told Sky Sports News.

"It's a massive event - obviously for me, more so - and it's incredibly hard to win. I totally understand that and I'll give everything I can to do well."

On his clay record, he added: "It's the only slam I haven't reached the final of - I've reached the semis there once - and to get the chance to play for a title there would be great.

"For me, clay's been a surface I've struggled on and my results on clay haven't been as good as on the other surfaces, so to be able to do that would be one of my best achievements."
