Andy Murray ‘Motivated’ to Win Roland Garros Title

British tennis superstar Andy Murray has set his eyes upon pulling off the prestigious Roland Garros title, as he insists that winning the mega event on clay would perhaps be his biggest achievement.

The 28-year-old Murray has reached the semi-finals of the tournament on three occasions including last year, where he failed to cross the line despite stretching the top-ranked Novak Djokovic to five sets.

He, however, is hoping to take a step further and reign supreme this time around.

“Winning the French Open, because it’s the most challenging surface for me, would be my biggest achievement – so I’m very motivated for that event this year and it’s the start of a really important summer,” Murray told Eurosport.

It’s not an obscure fact that Murray has not had the best of the memories on red dirt. However, this was before last year, as he bagged back-to-back titles in Munich and Madrid, before rounding up the clay season with a semi-final appearance at the Roland Garros.

“Clay has been the surface I’ve had the least success on: it’s just the reality that I haven’t been as good on it,” he made an honest assessment. “Until the last 18 months or so, I hadn’t beaten many of the top 10 players on clay before – but that changed last year.

“I’m hoping I can do a little bit better again this year.”
