Andy Murray has told BBC Scotland that his main target for 2010 is Grand Slam success after seeing an upturn in his game this year.
"Over the year, everything was better," he said. "I won more tournaments, I got to my highest ranking and my record against the top players improved.
"I had three tough losses in the Grand Slams. Hopefully, I can turn that round next year and draw on the experience.
"I'm going to go away, work hard and get myself ready to win a Grand Slam."
Murray ended the year ranked the fourth best player in the world but was up at number two for a while, following his Montreal Masters victory in August.
"Obviously, getting to number two was great," he added on a rare trip back to Scotland. "I was a bit unlucky picking up a wrist injury straight after and I missed the best part of nine weeks of tournaments.
"Getting to number two was great and hopefully, next year, I can go higher."
Murray's next tilt at a Grand Slam comes in January at the Australian Open, where he lost in the fourth round to Fernando Verdasco this year.
On achieving success in one of the four major tournaments in tennis, Murray said: "I believe I'm going to do it but I'm trying not to rush it.
"I always said I'd play my best tennis between 23 and 27 and I'm 23 next year.
"I go over to Miami on Sunday to start training and go out to Australia on the 29th."
Murray was speaking during a visit to Broomhill Primary School in Glasgow and he was also quizzed by pupils.
