Andy Murray plans to focus on his upcoming ATP commitments, rather than the French Open.

Andy Murray has revealed he plans to focus on improving his ATP tour results, rather than look too far ahead to the major tournaments, in 2013.

The world number three has reached the last three consecutive Grand Slam finals as well as securing the Olympic gold medal, but managed just one ATP title in 2012.

The US Open champion believes to improve his overall results he needs to focus less on the major events and concentrate on the matches immediately ahead of him.

"My next goal is to try and play good tennis in Indian Wells and Miami," Murray told the Daily Mirror. "I've realised in the last year or so that when I set myself short-term goals, I tend to play better tennis.

"Previously after every slam, I would look way ahead to the next one and kind of take my eye off the ball with the other events.

"So that's the immediate goal and I will also think slightly less about the French Open.

"It's a tournament I'm capable of doing well in but for me it takes a lot of practice, a lot of hours on clay to get used to it. So that's a goal for me, but I've got to do well in the next few months."

Murray is 1212/1 to win the French Open, while Novak Djokovic can be backed at 7/4 and David Ferrer 10/1.
