Murray Sets Sights on Grand Slam

Murray sets sights on Grand Slam

After winning the Davis Cup with Great Britain, Jamie Murray has set his sights on lifting a Grand Slam doubles title in 2016.

The Scot enjoyed a breakthrough year during the 2015 campaign as he reached two Grand Slam finals with Australian John Peers.

He has decided to end his partnership with Peers and is determined to do well next season after announcing his partnership with former world number three Bruno Soares of Brazil.

The 29-year-old admits the duo are already dreaming of lifting a Grand Slam trophy.

“He’s a very experienced player and he’s been at the top of the doubles game for quite a while now,” Murray told The Tennis Podcast.

“I play in the deuce court so I wanted to find someone that was playing in the ad court and Bruno is one of the best in the world on that side.

“I think for both of us, our goal, however long the partnership lasts, will be to try to win a Grand Slam doubles title. Of course you go into every partnership with the best of intentions, and every partnership is different, but we’ll work hard for it.”
