London, June 21 (ANI): British tennis star Andy Murray, 23, continues to be desperate about nailing down a Grand Slam title, though has banked over eight million pounds in prize money and owns a Surrey mansion in an area populated by Chelsea's stars.

Murray, who faces world No 80 Jan Hajek tomorrow, was quoted by The Telegraph, as saying: "I love tennis, but I don't necessarily like the fame that goes with it. I love driving my Ferrari. I just don't really like getting out of it. You could say that it's a poser's car and I don't really like drawing attention to myself so don't really drive it as much as I would like to."

"But the most important thing for me is to concentrate on tennis and work hard. I've made a lot of sacrifices for the sport. It's a difficult sport to play when you're younger. It isn't the most important thing. I've said that for the last three or four years. Family, friends and everyone are most important," he added. (ANI)
