Murray wants more major titles

5:34 am on 7 August 2013

The Wimbledon tennis champion Andy Murray has underlined his hunger for more grand slam silverware, saying he'd pass up the chance to be world number one if it meant he could enjoy more major success.

The 26-year-old will play his first match since being crowned Wimbledon champion when he competes in Montreal later this week.

After spending some time away from the court and having reassessed his goals following a holiday in the Bahamas and a training block in Miami Murray says his desire to win more major tournaments is stronger than ever.

Serbia's Novak Djokovic, who Murray beat to the Wimbledon crown, is currently number one with the Scot number two.

Murray's next opportunity to add to his two grand slam titles will be when he returns to New York later this month as defending champion at the US Open.
