Becker, a former US Open and six-time Grand Slam champion, believes Murray must find new inspiration, the report said.

He said that the Scot needs to set new goals, find new reasons to work harder and play better, adding that he has not yet been the number one player in the world, has not won at the ATP World Tour Finals, or the Australian Open.

Murray, who won Olympic gold and the US Open in 2012, admitted after Thursday`s defeat that it had not been easy to adjust after becoming the first British man to win Wimbledon for 77 years in July, the report said.
