Andy Murray: Has had to settle for the runner-up spot three times
Murray will be looking to go one step further after finishing as the runner-up three times at the Australian Open.
The Brit made history by winning Wimbledon last year before the latter part of his season was curtailed by back surgery.
Murray had already ended his country's 76-year wait for a male grand slam singles champion by winning the US Open in 2012 and, with that monkey off his back, he enjoyed a superb spell of form last season.
He reached the final of the Australian Open, where he was beaten by Novak Djokovic, and took the honours at the Miami Masters before injury disrupted his clay-court campaign.
He bounced back by going unbeaten on grass and saw off Djokovic to take the Wimbledon crown and delight the nation, although physical problems once again took their toll in the wake of a disappointing US Open.
Having taken time out to recuperate Murray is back on court and will be out to avenge three straight heartbreaking defeats to Djokovic in Melbourne.
Murray is a natural counter-puncher who prefers baseline exchanges, but he also possesses great anticipation and a fantastic change of pace.
