Murray described the last three months as the best period of his career while adding he hopes to claim many more victories in the coming future,Sport24 reported.

The 29-year-old has managed to reach the finals of Australian Open and French Open before losing the title at the hands of world number one Novak Djokovic.

While Djokovic is showing no sign of vulnerability despite his shocking third-round exit in Wimbledon, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have been struggling with injuries and consistency.
