Andy Murray targets improvement on clay ahead of the French Open but admits that Wimbledon is his ultimate goal.

Andy Murray has admitted that winning Wimbledon is his top priority this season.

The British number one said that he is hoping to improve his game on clay head of the French Open, but victory at the All England Club is his biggest ambition.

"I'm preparing as best as possible for [the French Open], but when Wimbledon comes round it is obviously the big goal of all of the players during the year," Murray told Sky Sports News.

"It's a massive event - obviously for me, more so - and it's incredibly hard to win. I totally understand that and I'll give everything I can to do well."

Murray reached the final of Wimbledon last year, losing to Roger Federer, but has never made it further than the semi-finals in the French Open.
