Andy Murray has revealed his key to success in 2012.

Andy Murray claims a combination of hard work and belief was the key behind his Grand Slam success in 2012.

The British number one finally broke his duck with victory at the US Open as he became the first British man in 76 years to win a Grand Slam, which came hot on the heels of his London Olympic gold medal win at Wimbledon.

The 25-year-old world number three almost made it a monumental Treble success but lost out to Roger Federer in the final at Wimbledon earlier in the summer.

The Olympics was great, the atmosphere was incredible. I took a lot of confidence from that going to the US Open.

However, Murray now has extra motivation going into the 2013 season knowing he is capable of beating the best players when it matters and he will be looking to add to his grand slam tally.

"The Olympics was great, the atmosphere was incredible. I took a lot of confidence from that going to the US Open. I managed to find a way to win that," Muray told Sky Sports.

"I was extremely motivated. After I'd lost a lot of tough finals, I was thinking 'was that hard work worth it? Was I good enough to win one?' It was physically very demanding so it meant all that work was worth it.

"So it motivated me to go away and work hard again. I will go into the off season very hard and be motivated to be ready for the Australian Open."

Murray is 5/2 to win the Australian Open next month, while he can be backed at 3/1 to win at Wimbledon next summer.
