Andy Murray insists that he is aiming to win Wimbledon for a second successive year when the tournament gets underway today.

Andy Murray has insisted that he is intent on retaining his Wimbledon crown when the Grand Slam gets underway on Monday.

Murray defeated Novak Djokovic in last year's final to become the first Briton to win the tournament since Fred Perry in 1936.

The 27-year-old, who is being trained by former Wimbledon women's champion ­Amelie Mauresmo, believes he can be victorious for a second successive year.

Murray is quoted as saying in the Daily Star: "To be honest, I don't feel too much different than I did a few days ago.

"I'm here to try to win the tournament. That's it. Preparation's gone well. So it's now down to me to try and perform on the court."

Murray will take on Belgium's David Goffin on Centre Court today.

Former French tennis player Amelie Mauresmo speaks at a press conference on January 31, 2013.
