Andy Murray hopes to secure back-to-back Grand Slam titles by winning the Australian Open.

British number one Andy Murray is in confident mood ahead of the Australian Open later this month.

The Scot finally managed to land one of tennis' biggest prizes last year as he secured the US Open title, as well as the Olympic gold, and Murray insists more Grand Slam titles will follow.

"The last few years I got close but never managed to get over the final hurdle. Now that I've managed to do it, I hope that when I'm in those situations again I'll deal with them better," said the Scot.

"I feel a little bit more relaxed than I normally do a few weeks before a slam. I prepared very well in Miami and trained hard to get myself ready for the new season, and I hope I can be successful here."

Murray will compete in the Brisbane International as he prepares for the Austrlian Open and can be backed at 4/9 to win the warm-up event, while Gilles Simon is 1000/1.
