Murray admits Wimbledon success is his number one goal

16th September 2019, 17:52 by Simon Barlow

Jamie Murray will target a Wimbledon title in 2020 as his main goal after winning the US Open mixed doubles title earlier this month.

The Scotsman will compete on home soil this week when he teams up with doubles partner JP Smith at the Murray Trophy in Glasgow.

The Davis Cup star has enjoyed a good season so far, the highlight being his partnership with Bethanie Mattek-Sands that conquered all at Flushing Meadows.

Murray is already looking forward to returning to the bigger stage and admits that triumph at Wimbledon is his main aim.

"[Success] is why we play and why we practice, put in the hours and make the sacrifices and commitments," he said. "It's to have the opportunity to go and compete in these events.

"It's been exciting for me in the last few years to go to these level of tournaments and feel you've got a genuine chance to win.

"For me, Wimbledon would be the biggest goal until the end of my career, to win the men's doubles. It didn't work out for me this year but next year. There's always next year."
