Andy Murray will delay his honeymoon until after the tennis season as he looks to continue his recent resurgence.

The Scot will wed long-term girlfriend Kim Sears on April 11, a day before the start of the third Masters event of the year in Monte Carlo.

And while the 27-year-old admits he is unlikely to head to Monaco straight after his nuptials, he will be delaying any honeymoon until the end of the campaign, with the season-ending World Tour Finals taking place in mid-November.

"Depending on how I feel after the wedding there's potential to play Monte Carlo, but I'd say that's unlikely," he told the Daily Mail. "The honeymoon won't be until the end of the year."

Murray is back up to four in the world rankings after dropping as low as 12 in September last year, advancing up the standings with wins in Shenzhen, Vienna and Valencia before reaching a fourth Australian Open final.

The engagement was announced on November 26, the same day Murray split with team members Dani Vallverdu and Jez Green, but despite the upheavals, Murray insists he can easily keep his professional and private lives separate.

"Tennis is important but we also have lives to live as well," he said. "When I'm on the court I'm not thinking 'I'm getting married in a few weeks' but back at the apartment there's time to do that. I can concentrate on both.

"As long as it's not in the forefront of my mind when I'm training then it's fine. It hasn't been a problem for me yet and I don't see it as an issue."
