In July, he became the first Briton to reach the Wimbledon final since 1938 and although Murray wept tears of frustration on Centre Court after Federer took the title, that run proved a defining moment.
However, Murray came back to Wimbledon for the Olympics just weeks later and thrashed Federer in straight sets to take gold in the singles final. He then won his first Grand Slam title beating Novak Djokovic in the US Open final in September. Now Murray is keen to wrap up his golden year with one more title.
“There’s always pressure at all the major tournaments, but I feel a little bit more relaxed coming in this year than I have in previous years because I managed to win the US Open. I can guarantee that I’ll give 110 percent on the court, fight as hard as I can,” he said.
