2004 Nov 17 - Murray aiming for top 50

Andrew Murray is without a doubt the brightest tennis prospect in Britain and comes as no surprise that his coach has set the US Open boys champion the goal of breaking into the world top 50 by the end of 2005.

The 17-year old Scot told BBC Radio Five Live:

"It'll be difficult but it's more a mental and confidence thing than anything else.

"I've been playing well and it's a case of putting what I've been doing on the practice courts onto the match court, and hopefully my ranking will go up."

Andrew will bid to claim the Australian Open boys title in January which will be his last major tournament in the junior ranks before stepping up to compete with the big boys in the main draw.

He added:

"It will be tough, but that's what my coach wants me to do.

"He's wanting me to play in all of the big tournaments and it's good to have somebody like that who gives you confidence and believes you can play in the Grand Slams.

"My coach thinks I can do it and he wants me to be in the top 50 by the end of 2005."
