The former British number one recently told Sky Sports that he has taken to married life like a duck to water, and has helped enhance his performance.

"It (marriage) has been nice and a lot of people have spoken about the honeymoon period," Murray said on Sky Sports 3.

"But we've been together a very long time and getting married was the next step.

"I've always said if the personal stuff is happy and under control that helps your performance on the court.

"But I also feel healthy this year and I have trained well, I'm in much better shape on the clay than I have been for a number of years," he concluded.
