Andy Murray says his coach Ivan Lendl won't allow him to dwell on his Wimbledon success and is already turning his attention to the defence of his US Open crown.

The world number two has been the centre of the media's attention since defeating Novak Djokovic on Sunday to become the first British men's champion at SW19 in 77 years.

A raft of TV interviews on Monday was followed by a trip to 10 Downing Street for drinks with Prime Minister David Cameron.

Murray's off-court activities are expected to last for the rest of the week, while the 26-year-old is also planning to take some time off following his exertions at the All England Club over the last fortnight.

However, it won't be long before Murray's focus turns back to his day job, with the US Open set to start on 26th August.

The British number one broke his Grand Slam duck in New York last year, beating Djokovic in a five set epic to claim the title at Flushing Meadows.

The Scot claims that despite winning two major titles in the 18 months he has been working with Lendl, his current coach isn't entirely happy with how his time mentoring Murray has gone.

The Czech coach is keen to see his protégé win more Grand Slam championships and Murray is predicting he will be pushing him hard in order to get him ready for the US Open.

Murray told The Sun: "I know Ivan is not content with how the last 18 months have gone. In particular, he thinks I could have won the Australian Open this year. Now his thoughts will be about the next challenge and getting me ready for the US Open.

"No doubt, he will be training me really hard over in Miami."

Murray has been full of praise for the role Lendl has played in his development since the start of their relationship in December 2011, claiming he couldn't have achieved what he has without him.
