Mint Murray geared up for US Open after Toronto win

ANDY MURRAY believes he is on track for a shot at the US Open title following his impressive victory in the Rogers Cup.

Murray toppled world No2 Roger Federer 7-5, 7-5 to claim his first title of 2010 in
Toronto on Sunday having already enjoyed a straight sets victory over world No1 Rafael Nadal in Saturday’s semi-final.

Now, the world No4 has his sights set on turning his impressive hard-court form into a first Grand Slam title at Flushing Meadows this month.

“The US Open is the main goal but this is a good start,” said Murray, who continues his preparations for the US Open at the Cincinnati Masters this week. “I played five days in a row from Wednesday – all the matches right in the heat of the day so it was good for me physically. I’ll try to keep it going in Cincinnati but the most important thing is getting ready for the US Open.”

Of his victory in Toronto, the Scot added: “It was one of the best weeks I’ve had. Winning a tournament is always great, but it’s the first time I beat Roger and Rafa in the same tournament, which is probably the most pleasing thing.”

Murray, meanwhile, says he is in no hurry to appoint a new coach after splitting with Miles Maclagan last month.

“I’m not going to rush into anything,” he said “I’m sure after the US Open I’ll look long and hard at who I would like to work with and what I’d like to do moving forward but I can’t see myself making any changes before the US Open.”
