Andy Murray feels that he needs more time on clay, and has announced that he'll be staying in Monte Carlo to work on his dirtballing.

Who needs an excuse to stay in Monte Carlo? Well, if he needed one, Andy Murray has found one. After falling to a bit of a hammering at the hands of Stanislas Wawrinka at the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters, the Scot has announced that he'll be staying in the idyllic location to scrub up on his clay court skills.

"I need to make sure I get good practice in, that's for sure, over the next two weeks," Murray told ATP reporters following his loss against Stan the man. "I played a lot of matches this year, obviously just not on the clay… The issue is . . . certain things I need to iron out in my game, things I need to work on."

Muzza wasn't happy with how he played, which was fairly obvious to anyone watching the match. His head seemed to drop and for much of the second set he looked dejected as Wawrinka took control.

"No one wants to lose matches like [today's]. But hopefully I can use it as motivation to improve because I need to do a lot of work," added Murray. "Sometimes you can squeeze through matches and not necessarily play well, [but] you don't actually see what's gone wrong because you've won the matches, so you think it's okay. Obviously I'll need to work really hard over the next sort of two weeks to get myself ready for Madrid."

"It does take me time to feel comfortable on the surface,” Murray continued. “I need matches against top players to see what's going wrong and what's going right, things I need to work on to get better. Normally towards the end of the clay court season, I start to feel better with my game and I've had some good results, but at the start I have struggled a little bit."

Murray has surprised a few people by not attempting to enter ATP Barcelona for some competitive action, but he'll have plenty of work to do with Ivan Lendl. We'll next see the Brit on court at the Madrid Masters.
