Murray reveals 'Wimbledon bounce' 
Andy Murray has said the support he 
received following his Wimbledon final 
defeat this summer has inspired him to 
push for the world number one spot. 

Speaking at a special homecoming event 
in Dunblane, Murray revealed it had 
made him want to start training hard 
again soon after the loss. 

The world No 3 added that now was a 
good time for him "to try and push on". 

The tennis star described the backing 
he got after the "tough" Wimbledon loss 
to Roger Federer as "amazing".
