I’m Hoping to Win the Australian Open 2016: Andy Murray

Two-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray articulated his desire to clinch the next month’s Australian Open crown. Having finished as the runner-up on four different occasions, the 28-year-old is “hoping” to finish ahead of all his counterparts at the prestigious major Down Under.

Murray reached the title-clash of the tournament first in 2010, where he lost to Roger Federer. His final opponent in the next three events – in 2011, 2013 and 2015 – was Novak Djokovic, against whom he got beaten in all the three deciders. But, the Brit is looking beyond that this time around.

“It’s one of my favorite tournaments during the year,” Murray was quoted as saying by Yahoo Sports. “I’ve also played some of my best tennis there. I’ve always got to the latter stages and given myself a chance to win, but not quite managed to get over the final hurdle. I’m hoping this year will be that year.”

Fresh from guiding Great Britain to a historic Davis Cup triumph last month, Murray will look forward to adding the Hopman Cup title to his kitty when he begins the new year at the season-opening mixed-team event in Perth next week.
