Murray still believes in himself which is why his 2022 season did not leave him satisfied. The Brit is aiming for much higher goals next year as he hopes a year under his belt will finally give him a chance to return to the top next year.
"I’m positive about next season and the work I have to do. I’ve already started some of that and I need to empty the tank in the next six to eight weeks in the gym and on the practice court."

Continuing his exclusive talk to the Evening Standard, Murray added:
"I was 130-140 in the world at the start of the season and I’m now inside the top 50. For most players, that’s a really positive year. For me, I don’t view it that way but I did make progress."
And finished off:
"There’s no guarantee I would have won those matches without the cramping but I feel there would have been potentially deeper runs. I played quite a lot of tournaments from Wimbledon through to the end of the season. From an endurance perspective, I didn’t cope that well but there’s not been the injuries and niggles, which hasn’t been the case the last few years.”
