Andy Murray

Profile

Andy Murray, currently ranked number 10 in the world, is the British No.1, 2012 US Open Champion, 2013 Wimbledon Champion and reigning Olympic Singles Champion.

From winning his first tournament as an under-10 junior at the Dunblane Sports Club to his first junior major at the US Open it became apparent Andy was destined for the top.

After turning pro in 2005, Andy won his first ATP title, the SAP open in San Jose, a year later. Fast forward two years and seven more tour titles, Andy reached his first grand slam final, the 2008 US Open. However in 2012, having lost in three subsequent grand slam final appearances, Andy became the US Open Champion.

This was hot on the heels of an illustrious Gold Medal victory at Wimbledon during the London 2012 Olympics.

Andy then ended years of British heartbreak on the same turf just a year later by becoming the first British male in 77 years to win the highly coveted Wimbledon Championships in London in July 2013.

Currently on 28 career titles, Andy is Great Britain’s most successful tennis player of the Open era and his maiden grand slam title ended Great Britain’s 76-year wait for a male grand slam champion.

Everybody always talks about the pressure of playing at Wimbledon, how tough it is, but the people watching make it so much easier to play.
