Andy Murray hasn't played since he lost the Australian Open final to Novak Djokovic, but had every reason to be joyful these days, after becoming father of a baby girl named Sophia. Now, Andy will be back on the courts, setting his goals high for the remaining part of the season.

2016 Ambitions

After his loss to Novak Djokovic in Melbourne, Andy Murray has set his sights on winning the remainder three Grand Slams plus retaining the Davis Cup for Great Britain. This would mean that his schedule would be much tougher than the 2015 season, considering this is an Olympic year, but Andy is ready for the upcoming challenges.

Speaking with The Guardian Andy said, "It’s 100% Olympics and I want to try to play Davis Cup too. But it depends on what happens this week against Japan, because that could change things a lot. If we don’t win, I could take five or six days off after Wimbledon (when Davis-Cup quarter final is scheduled) and get myself ready for the hardcourt swing that leads to the Olympics in August, followed by the US Open. I’d love to win the Olympics again, but I’d also love to win Wimbledon again – in fact, all of the Slams and the Davis Cup. But it would be difficult to pick one event over another. I’d like to do well in all of them. I think it’s possible, but you need to be pretty smart with your schedule."

“I could potentially play Wimbledon on the grass and the next week could be on a clay court (away against Kazakhstan or at home with Serbia in most likely scenario), and then a couple of weeks later the Olympics on a hard court. I’m preparing for it to be tough; that’s why, in the early part of the year, it’s important to get time off just now. After Monte Carlo I’m going to take a week to 10 days’ rest as well.”
