Former Wimbledon champion Goran Ivanisevic has backed Andy Murray to win the US Open title next month.

The final major of the year begins on Monday, and the 2001 All-England champion has backed the Scot to go all the way.

"My pick for the US Open is Andy Murray. I'd really like to see him win it - he deserves it. He played a really great Olympic Games and this will give him extra motivation and confidence," he told reporters.

Murray won gold at the 2012 Olympic Games this summer.
