I can win more grand slams, insists Andy Murray

World number two Andy Murray is refusing to give up the chase for more grand slam glory, even as he prepares for a return from his longest in-season break from tennis.

Murray has not played competitive tennis since his defeat to Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open final almost a month ago with the Scot putting sport on hold following the birth of his first child on February 7.

Focus now turns to the Davis Cup as defending champions GB face Japan in their World Group tie in Birmingham from March 4 to 6, and Murray will once again be expected to lead the charge.

He does have the cloud hanging over him of not winning a grand slam since his Wimbledon triumph in 2013, but Murray said: "When I lost the Wimbledon 2012 final I didn't know if I'd ever win a slam.

"But I believe I still can. I've been close the last year. I had my best French Open. At Wimbledon I was playing extremely well and it took (Roger) Federer to play an unbelievable match.

"I can definitely still win more slams."
