Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has admitted that he is unsure whether his match fitness will allow him to go all the way in a Grand Slam tournament, ahead of the Australian Open.

The three-time Melbourne finalist, who has played just three exhibitions and two ATP Tour matches since returning to action on December 26, will face Japanese Go Soeda in the first round on Tuesday.

According to the BBC, the Scot said that although he felt 'good' after recovering from lower back surgery in September, but he could not gauge his match fitness as is not sure how many matches a player needs to play in order to be 100 percent fit.

Murray further said that right now, he feels like he is still a long way from winning the tournament as he does not know how he would feel after playing a five-set match in 40 degrees C, although he added that he may start to gain confidence and playing fitness if he can get himself through a few rounds in the tournament.

Despite his lack of competitive court time, Murray remains ambitious to add to his two Grand Slam titles after his enforced break, the report added.
