Andy Murray has managed to slot seamlessly into the new 'big four' since winning the US Open title, and he even came within one victory of winning back-to-back slams. The Brit managed to get the slam title monkey off his back at Flushing Meadows last season, though there's one slam in particular that his fans will want to see him clinch - Wimbledon.

Britain has had to wait for a long time for a Wimbledon champ. Not since Fred Perry lifted the trophy in 1936 have the home nation been able to celebrate the triumph of a Brit in the men's final. Murray came close to putting an end to the wait last season when he took the first set off of Roger Federer in the final, but sensing one of his last major opportunities to win a major in the current golden era, the Swiss ace fired back for a four-set success.

Unlike in past years, Murray seems to be an increasingly consistent competitor. He currently sits at No. 2 in the world rankings and has competed in the last three slam finals. In between Wimbledon and the US Open he also managed to avenge his loss to Federer by beating him for Olympic gold in the summer.

Following his recent Miami Masters triumph, in which he saved match point against pugnacious Spaniard David Ferrer in the final, Murray now has 2 ATP titles to his name for 2013. His all-round game is making him a threat on every surface, and we may even see big things from him on clay. After all, he's vowed to improve upon previous outings on the dirt this year.

Seeing as he's already renowned as a serious force on the lawns, Murray should enter this year's Wimbledon Championships as one of the front-runners. Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal will stand in his way, but at last it looks like Andy Murray can stand toe-to-toe with this trio and consider himself equal.
