Brit tennis ace Andy Murray has claimed setting short-term goals helps him play better tennis, adding apart from the Grand Slams, he will equally concentrate on the other tournaments too this year.
The US Open champion has never won a clay court tournament and is determined to mount a serious challenge at the French Open in May, but after losing the Australian Open final to Novak Djokovic, the world number three said he will no longer focus all his efforts on the Grand Slams, the Daily Mirror reports.
The Scot now plans to train in Florida with coach Ivan Lendl before returning to action on the American hard courts in March, and Murray said 2013, now he is a Grand Slam champion, would be different.
Murray said his next goal is to try and play good tennis in Indian Wells and Miami, adding he realised in the last year or so that when he sets himself short-term goals, he tends to play better tennis.
Murray added that previously after every Slam, he would look way ahead to the next one and kind of take his eye off the ball with the other events, therefore, that's the immediate goal for him and he will also think slightly less about the French Open.
