Andy Murray eyes world number one spot

Overall, Murray is just over 1,000 points behind Djokovic this year.

These are the four Grand Slams, the ATP World Tour finals, eight compulsory Masters 1000 tournaments, and his best six other events.

"It's definitely a goal". And I think my results kind of for the rest of the year showed that.

But Murray is already focused on a frenetic August that will see him defend his Olympic singles title in Brazil before heading to NY for a tilt at a second US Open victory.

"I just need to take a few days off at some stage over the next few weeks because I maybe messed up a little bit a year ago". Obviously it will be quite different to the Olympics when it was held here but I've loved being involved in the two Olympics that I've been at. How many can he go on to win?

"I put myself in a position all of the time in these events to win them".

"Yeah possibly, I mean I have always been very emotional, just people don't always see it.but if you ask my wife she would tell you I'm pretty emotional". It's better to set the bar high and miss out on your target.

Murray admits it is feasible that he could go on a similar run of success in the slams late on in his career, but will have to find a way to get past Djokovic to do it. When I finish it would be nice if British tennis was in a better place than when I came in.

"I knew I must have achieved something special on Sunday because I got a hug from Ivan", Murray added. While his idol Andre Agassi claimed five major titles from the age of 29 onwards, the Scot said he didn't have a number of slams in mind which would allow him to retire satisfied.

'It's very rare that you get through a Slam without playing Novak, Roger Federer or Rafa Nadal'. "It's an impossible job".

Murray, who beat Canadian powerhouse Milos Raonic on Sunday to take his second Wimbledon title, nearly single-handedly led Britain to their first Davis Cup triumph for 79 years in November. "What's next for him is up to him", said Raonic, a 25-year-old Canadian who had never before participated in a Grand Slam final.

During the trophy presentation, Murray joked: "Playing in a Wimbledon final's tough, but I certainly wouldn't like to be a prime minister. I am not talking about the world rankings - because for now the gap is really big - but in the level of play".
