The reinvigorated Scot starts his campaign to claim the Sony Ericsson Open title on Saturday against Argentina’s world number 59 Juan Monaco, in the knowledge that a run to the final could see him usurp Novak Djokovic, the current third-ranked player.

Murray will be wary of a player who as recently as 13 months ago reached 14th in the ATP rankings but, having fully recovered from a recent illness to reach the final of the BNP Paribas Open final in Indian Wells last weekend, the 21-year-old will have no excuse for failing to perform – especially so given he will be able to recuperate each evening in his own apartment.

“It’s nice,” he admitted. “It’s the first year that I will be able to stay in my apartment.

“I’ve spent a lot of time here in the last year and a half or so – training, taking a couple of holidays here as well. I know Miami relatively well.

“Obviously it’s nice to get to stay in your own bed at the tournament. That doesn’t happen too much throughout the year.”
