ANDY Murray broke the habits of a lifetime to toast his second Wimbledon title with a boozy late night at a London night spot then said he is aiming to gatecrash Novak Djokovic's party at the top of the world rankings.
'Everyone's time comes at different stages.
"The last three months have been some of the best I've played in my career in terms of consistency".
He will not play in the Davis Cup tie against Britain later this week, with Murray also expected not to feature, although he has suggested he will be in Belgrade to cheer on the team.
"I think before when I won here I was motivated genuinely exclusively really by the Slams".
"It has been a long few months for me already", said the player who won all three of Britain's points in November's Davis Cup final victory against Belgium.
Following his shortcomings to win his first ever Grand Slam title, Raonic heads to the ATP 1000 Masters in Toronto on July 25-31, where he could play the likes of Murray, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. I'm going to call him after this, ' Murray told the BBC on Monday.
"But I think Novak is still clearly No 1 in the world right now, he is not just going to sort of go away because he has had one bad tournament. If I want to add to three Slams, I'm going to have to find ways to win against them".
And while Djokovic now holds three of the four major titles, his shock third round KO at SW19 has convinced the Scot he's not just playing a game of fruitless catch-up. But Djokovic retains a huge lead and it would take a highly unlikely set of results for Murray to be within range this year.
"I played a little bit too much and by the time the US Open came around I was a bit flat and worn out".
"Obviously, I'd like to try to win a fourth now". "And having won here again, it gives me a big lift, hopefully through to the end of this year and beyond, that I can win some more Slams".
He said: "After Wimbledon the last time, the few months afterwards, motivation was hard".
"The father of one has also enlisted his former coach and tennis legend Ivan Lendl after losing the 2016 French Open final, explaining:" I wanted to work with him again, he's given me help at these events, and whether it's 5 percent, 10 percent, 2 percent, he does make a difference to me".
"You know before, tennis was all I was bothered about, whereas now the first thing I think about when I get up in the morning isn't tennis anymore and that's a good thing".
