New York: Andy Murray chuckled as he explained the very best part about owning a pair of Grand Slam titles, one from the US Open last year, the other from Wimbledon last month.

No more of those nagging, oft-repeated queries - the ones he heard over and over and over again.

"Not too much for me has changed. But the one thing that's been nice is that, literally for five or six years, I did a press conference before every tournament and after every single match, and I got asked that question, I'd say, 90 percent of the time: Why have you never won Wimbledon? When are you going to win Wimbledon? Why have you not won a Grand Slam?" Murray said in an interview with The Associated Press.
