Andy Murray Bio

No British man had won Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936 until Andy Murray snapped a 77-year British men's title drought on July 7th, 2013, beating world No. 1 Novak Djokovic to win Wimbledon. Murray was a finalist at the 2008 U.S. Open, handing Rafael Nadal his first loss as the world No. 1 in the semifinals before falling to Roger Federer in the final. Murray is a three-time Australian Open finalist, falling to Novak Djokovic in the 2013 final and 2011 final a year after losing to Federer in the final. He broke into the Top 100 in 2005 and won his first career title in 2006, a year he finished ranked No. 17. In 2007, despite missing significant playing time with back and wrist injuries, he climbed into the Top 15 and added two more titles. He won five titles in 2008 and six in 2009.  In 2008, Murray became the first British player in the history of the ATP rankings to finish the season ranked in the Top 4. (The previous best year-end ranking for a British man had been No. 6, achieved by both Greg Rusedski and Tim Henman.) Murray reached a career-high ranking of No. 2 on August 17, 2009, and finished that year ranked No. 4 again. In 2010, Murray swept Nadal and Federer in succession to defend his Masters title in Toronto. He did not drop a set in five matches to collect his sixth Masters 1000 championship in Shanghai; Murray finished 2010 ranked No. 4 for the third straight season. The Scot lost his third career major final at the Australian Open in January, 2011, became the first Brit since Tim Henman in 2004 to reach the Roland Garros semifinals and later became the seventh man in the Open era to reach all four major semifinals in the same season (he lost to Nadal in the French Open, Wimbledon and U.S. Open semis). During the Asian autumn swing, Murray won titles in Bangkok, Tokyo and Shanghai, which was his eighth Masters 1000 championship. His 17-match winning streak ended in the Paris Masters quarterfinals; Murray collected five titles in 2011. Murray, who hired Hall of Famer Ivan Lendl as his coach, opened the 2012 season winning his 22nd career title in Brisbane. Murray was runner-up to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon final; a month later he swept Federer in their rematch at Wimbledon to capture the Olympic gold medal and thrill the home crowd.  Murray defeated Djokovic to win his first Grand Slam title at the 2012 U.S. Open. On March 31st, 2013, Murray saved a match point to beat David Ferrer in the Miami final. He became the first British man since 1925 to win three Queen's Club titles in June. Murray beat Djokovic, 6-4, 7-5, 6-4, to win the 2013 Wimbledon. A native of Dunblane, Scotland, Murray attended Dunblane Primary School and was in attendance on the day of the notorious Dunblane massacre, when a gunman shot and killed 16 children and one adult before killing himself. Murray was eight years old at the time. As a teenager, Murray trained in Barcelona at the Sanchez-Casal tennis academy. He won the U.S. Open junior title at age 17. His mother, Judy, is a former Scottish national tennis team coach. His older brother, Jamie, is also a pro tennis player. The left-handed Jamie, a doubles specialist, won the 2007 Wimbledon mixed doubles title with Jelena Jankovic.
