Murray targets slam after Olympic glory
Olympic gold medallist Andy Murray has turned his sights towards winning his first Grand Slam tennis tournament at the US Open in three weeks' time.
The 25-year-old Scot said he hopes to be rested enough for success after coming so close at Wimbledon last month.
"I've felt close to Grand Slams before, and obviously this is the biggest title of my career," he told the BBC. "I've got the US Open in three weeks' time, so I'll have to get myself rested."
He added: "I'm leaving for Toronto later today, there's a tournament starts there. I play my first match on Wednesday. I've got three weeks to get myself ready for the US Open, and I hope that can be the first one."
Murray, from Dunblane, beat Roger Federer in the men's singles at the London Olympics on Sunday, winning nine games in a row at one point and dominating virtually throughout to triumph 6-2 6-1 6-4.
He said: "It was the biggest win of my career, that's for sure. The Wimbledon final was four weeks ago to the day yesterday - it's definitely easier coming out the winner.
"The Wimbledon final was really tough, I was really emotional after. It took me quite a few days to get over it but this makes up for it."
He said that beating his Swiss opponent did not feel like revenge for Wimbledon, where Federer secured a record-equalling seventh title.
Murray said: "I used the Wimbledon final to help me in the match yesterday. I was very nervous before the Wimbledon final and during it. My coach saw me afterwards and said I'd never play in that much pressure again.
"I just felt I dealt with the situation a lot better yesterday and converted my chances when I had them, and that was the difference. So glad to get a gold medal, it means a lot."
