Andy Murray is hoping the quiet life in Manhattan will help him break his Grand Slam duck at the US Open.

Olympic gold medallist Andy Murray has revealed that he is planning to stay in a quiet area of Manhattan to help improve his chances of success at the upcoming US Open.

Murray, who has made one final at Flushing Meadows in 2008, is hoping a different hotel and the decision to avoid the court as much as possible will give him a better chance of winning his first Grand Slam.

"[I'm] staying in a quieter hotel this time and trying to make sure I don't spend too much time around the courts," Reuters quotes Murray as saying.

"I have stayed in a lot of different hotels in the seven or so years I have been playing here and I just decided to go for something a bit different.

"A lot of the slams I have tried to stay somewhere quieter because that's what I like. When I have played well at Wimbledon I have stayed at home and it's normally fairly quiet where I live. I like that."

Murray has reached four major finals in his career but has lost each of them - three times to Roger Federer and once to Novak Djokovic.
