Greg Rusedski thinks Andy Murray should be targeting multiple grand slam titles in 2017.The 29-year-old will head into next season as the man to beat after clinching the year-end world No. 1 spot by defeating Novak Djokovic at the ATP World Tour Finals.Rusedski told PA Sport: This year was a rarity that the player who finished No. 1 didnt have the most majors.Next year the goals got to be to try to win at least two majors because usually the best player on the planet has the most majors in their pocket. Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have won 43 slam trophies between them and have all claimed three titles in a season at least once.The Australian Open is only seven weeks away and, after losing in the final five times, a first title in Melbourne is an obvious big goal for the Scot.Should Murray achieve that, he would need only a French Open title to complete the career Grand Slam. He reached the final at Roland Garros for the first time this year, losing to Djokovic.Former British No. 1 Rusedski added: Hes been in five finals in Australia, thats an astronomical amount of times without winning the title.For him, thats one of the slams you would have expected him to win first. He gets his off-season usually spot on so I think going in he has to be the favourite for the title.I always thought he could win the French but I think he didnt believe he could win. Djokovic finally won his first one this year, Federer only won his when Rafa went out, so its not an easy thing to do.Rafas going to be back and Im sure Novaks going to be back but Andys got a great shot.Murray finished the season on a winning streak of 24 matches and five titles and will shortly head to Miami for his pre-season training camp.Meanwhile, Djokovics victory in Paris in June marked the divide between two very different halves of the year for the Serb.So dominant for the first five-and-a-half months, Djokovic ended the season looking like a shadow of the man who briefly held all four slam titles.He was the favourite to reclaim the No. 1 spot in the final at the O2 Arena with Murray having survived an epic semifinal against Milos Raonic, but produced an error-strewn performance.The 29-year-old has admitted to feelings of burn-out as well as an unspecified personal issue, and Rusedski believes the sudden prominence in Djokovics team of Pepe Imaz, a coach who focuses on mental well-being, is a sign all is not well.Its got to hurt, said Rusedski. Had he won I think he would have gone away thinking, great year, won two majors and finished off No. 1. Now Murray is the one who goes to the off-season with momentum.I just think you have to have your whole life in balance if youre going to be No. 1, and Andys life is completely in balance at the moment.Djokovic just doesnt seem to be in balance. If Pepes coming more to the forefront, that means obviously hes not feeling in balance because hes always been in the background of the team. It just seems a strange environment around his team at the moment.Falcons Jerseys China .S.
