Britain’s Andy Murray may not have had the most successful of years by his standards, but all is not lost as he prepares for the final Grand Slam of the year.

While the 27-year-old has continued to struggle to recover from the back surgery that forced him to miss the end of the 2013 season, with his world ranking dropping from fourth to 10th this year, he is now at optimum fitness going into the second hard court season of the year.

The Dunblane-born player has not played since losing to Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon, and he is yet to win a singles title since winning the tournament at SW19 in 2013.

But here are five reasons why he can turn his year on its’ head in New York, and replicate the scenes of 2012, where he won his first Grand Slam title, making him the first British man to win a Grand Slam since Fred Perry in 1936.
