Murray desperate to add to trophy cabinet

Murray landed his third Grand Slam with a second Wimbledon victory earlier this summer before going on to defend his Olympic gold medal, becoming the only player to have won two Olympic singles titles.

However, at 29 years of age, Murray is well aware that he needs to make the most of the next few years if he is to significantly add to his trophy cabinet.

Andy Murray wants to seize every chance that comes his way over the next few years before time catches up with him.

Roger Federer, 35, is still a regular in the latter stages of the Grand Slams - he reached two finals in 2015 - but has not won one of tennis' top prizes since 2012.

Like the currently sidelined Federer, Murray is keen to continue playing for as long as possible but concedes time is no longer on his side, and he is using that as motivation.

"I hope I'm still playing like this when I'm 38, but it's pretty unlikely," Murray, who won the US Open in 2012, told reporters. "I'm using that as a positive. You have to make the most of every opportunity.

"It's a different mentality to when you're younger and you feel like you have time on your side. I want to make the most of every tournament and try and win as much as I can in the next few years."Murray landed his third Grand Slam with a second Wimbledon victory earlier this summer before going on to defend his Olympic gold medal, becoming the only player to have won two Olympic singles titles.
