Murray has focus on defence

Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has vowed to savour the occasion when he returns to Centre Court on Monday.

Murray begins the defence of the men's singles title against Belgian David Goffin, a year after ending Britain's 77-year wait for the success.

The Scotsman is not prepared to rest on his laurels though, and is looking to win a third grand slam as soon as possible.

And a victory at Wimbledon would be his third in a row at the All England Club following on from his Olympic goal, prior to last year's men's title.

"I think tomorrow, I need to enjoy that moment when I walk back on the court,\" the 27-year-old said.

"But as soon as I start playing the match, it's about trying to win. And I enjoy winning. I don't really want to go out on the court tomorrow and enjoy playing and then lose.

"It's time when I get on the court to start concentrating. Not think about last year, concentrate on this year's tournament and that's it.

"I'm aware when I walk out on the court tomorrow I'm going to be nervous.

"I know there's going to be pressure. That's why today when I woke up there are butterflies there. You're one day away from starting the tournament.
