Andy Murray aims to improve his form on clay in time for the French Open.

Andy Murray has insisted that he will try to be on top form for the clay court part of the season.

The Scotsman, who won the Miami Masters title by defeating David Ferrer in the final on Sunday, has admitted that he struggles on the tricky surface.

"I can play some decent tennis on it but I need to work extremely hard on the clay because I haven't played on it in ten-and-a-half months now, so it always takes me a bit of time to get used to," BBC Sport quotes Murray as saying.

"It's the most challenging surface for me and with Rafa (Rafael Nadal) coming back it's going to be very tough, but I'll give it my best shot."

The French Open is the next major tournament for the Scotsman.
