Murray made history when he became the first Briton in 77 years to lift the Wimbledon men's singles title.

It has capped a remarkable 12 months, with the 26-year-old winning an Olympic gold medal, also at SW19, as well as ending his grand slam final hoodoo with glory at last year's US Open.

The Scot admitted he struggled to handle criticism of his choices earlier in his career, but is now understandably riding the crest of a wave.

"It does upset you when people you don't know are criticising you, and things are getting said about your family and the people around you," he said in his BBC Sport column.

"You start doubting yourself - am I working with the right people? Am I doing the right thing by training here? Have I picked the right coach? It's not easy. The nice thing now is that hopefully I'll be able to stick with my team until the end of my career.

"Hopefully together we can win a few more Grand Slam titles, although I'm not going to put a number on it.

"If the number one ranking comes that would be great, but I now hold two of the Slams, have reached the final of another and won Olympic gold, and I'm nowhere near being number one. I'll concentrate on trying to win the big titles and the ranking will look after itself."

Murray is already relishing his return to Centre Court as defending champion next year.

"I just cannot imagine what that experience will be like," he added.

"There will be a lot of pressure and nerves but I don't think it can be as bad as it has the last few years."
