Positive Murray vows to get better

Andy Murray is delighted with his 2012 but is confident he will improve.

Andy Murray was in a positive mood when he reflected on 2012 but he is in no doubt that he is still learning and he will improve.

The 25-year-old British number one finally ended his long wait for a grand slam title when he won the US Open, while he also defeated Roger Federer on Centre Court at Wimbledon to pick up an Olympic gold medal in the past 12 months.

And, while Murray's campaign ended in disappointment on Sunday evening when he lost out 7-6 (7/5) 6-2 against Federer in the semi-finals of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London, the Scot has been delighted with the way things have gone this year.

If you told me last year I'd be sitting in this position with the results I had last year, I would have agreed and signed up for that straight away.

However, Murray feels he could have won more ATP titles having just lost out in the Shanghai final against Novak Djokovic last month, while he threw away match points in the semi-finals of both the Tokyo and Paris Masters against Milos Raonic and Jerzy Janowicz respectively.

Therefore, he is aiming to come back stronger in 2013 starting with another grand slam title tilt in the Australian Open in January. Murray is 5/2 to win in Melbourne, Djokovic is 1/1 and Federer can be backed at 9/2.

He said: "I don't think the results have been that bad or that I played poorly or not responded well to winning the US Open. I feel like I played some decent tennis. I've just not quite finished a couple of matches when I had chances.

"I obviously would have liked to have won those and had one or two other wins over Novak. But if you told me last year I'd be sitting in this position with the results I had last year, I would have agreed and signed up for that straight away.

"I'm happy with the year and I'll work really hard in December to get better."
