Murray hoping for a different ending

New world number one Andy Murray is hoping to win the ATP season finale for the first time in 2016.

The Scot has qualified for the ATP World Tour FInals for nine consecutive years but never reached the final of the event, reaching the semis on three separate occasions.

In 2015, Murray failed to make out of the group stage, losing a crucial encounter to Stan Wawrinka. Off the back a sterling year, this time he is looking to be better. 

"Maybe this year will be different to the last one," the 29-year-old told atpworldtour.com.

"I've always gone into London trying to do well, and it's never quite happened for me but I’ve had a couple of tough losses. Against Rafa [Nadal] in the semis once, and one year [2014] I was really trying to chase the points to get in there and I played probably too much to do that. I am looking forward to it."

Murray has enjoyed a superlative year on the courts, winning eight titles, including three Masters 1000 titles. The three-time grand slam winner is currently on 21 win streak and he hoping to continue this stunning run in London.

"It's been a great year and I want to finish as well as I can," said Murray. 

"I'm not so much thinking about finishing as the world number one I just want to play well at The O2. I've not always played well there and I want to do myself justice."

The ATP World Tour Finals begins on 13 November in London.
