Australian Open 2012: Andy Murray Hopes To Rebound In This Year's Open

Andy Murray has had a rough go of it in the past two Australian Open's, failing to win a set in either one of the finals at Melbourne Park. "Yeah, I don't normally think too much about the past," Murray told James Hunter Smith. "Just always try and concentrate on what's in front of you, [and] what you're trying to achieve this year."

In the 2011 Australian open, Murray lost in straight-sets to Novak Djokovic. "[I] need to get physically stronger. Then the other things I'll keep to myself and talk with [my coach] about, talk with the guys about, things that I need to improve in my game," Murray said in response to a question about what he took away from the loss.

Murray takes on American Ryan Harrison in the first round of the 2012 Australian Open as he gets set to take a crack at winning his first major in 2012. "If I get myself in [the final] this time around, I'll do things a bit differently," Murray said.
