Novak Djokovic has been the man to beat in Melbourne in recent times.

Grand Slam victories are the main focus for Andy Murray in 2014, with the Scot fully fit and ready to challenge for the Australian Open in Melbourne.

Murray already has US Open and Wimbledon triumphs on his CV and he is eager to add to that tally, ahead of trying to rise to the top of the world rankings.

With the action in Melbourne set to get underway on 13th January, Murray told Sky Sports News: “My goal is to win Grand Slams, simple as that.

“I don’t think the rankings always reflect who the best player is. Often they do, but it isn’t always the case and for years Grand Slams is what I have been judged on.

“If someone said to me that I could get to be No. 1 in the world for one week, or win another Grand Slam, I would rather win another Grand Slam.”

Murray has reached the final in Melbourne in three of the last four years, but has yet to secure the title, losing to Roger Federer in 2010 and Novak Djokovic in both 2011 and 2013.

The British number one is 6.50 to finally land the Australian Open crown this year, with Federer 17.00 to triumph in Melbourne for the fifth time.

Meanwhile, Djokovic can be backed at 2.00 to make it four in a row in Melbourne and five overall.
