Andy Murray declares he's ready to win a Grand Slam

World no.3 Andy Murray believes it's time time to break his Grand Slam duck.

He declared to his fans that he's ready for a fortnight of Murray-mania at SW19.

“I'd obviously love to win here,” said the Scot.

“I enjoy playing on grass and I love playing at Wimbledon.“

“I feel like I'm ready to win a Grand Slam now, whereas last year I might not have been. But I understand how difficult it is. It's not an easy thing to do.”
Murray said he is frustrated that he will not get the chance to avenge last year’s quarterfinal defeat to Rafael Nadal.
“I enjoy watching him play. He's my favourite player to watch, so I'm sure the fans wanted to come to see him will all be disappointed. But he's got to do what's best for him.”
Murray will start his Wimbledon campaign against American Robert Kendrick.
But the Scot insists there will be no complacency, “I'm focusing totally on the first round, not looking past him at all. He's a tough grass‑court player. He has a big game. He plays very aggressive and takes a lot of chances. So, no, no chance of me underestimating him."

When asked what would a Wimbledon triumph mean for British tennis, Murray said, “It's been such a long time, and people have been waiting for it for - well, forever now. I'm sure it would be huge, huge news for quite a few weeks."
