Biography

From a sporting family, his brother Jamie has a grand slam doubles title to his credit and formed a doubles pairing with Andy in Beijing, whilst his mother won multiple Scottish national tennis titles and his grandfather was a professional footballer. Murray attended Dunblane Primary School and was present when Thomas Hamilton shot dead 17 of his schoolmates in what became known as the “Dunblane Massacre.”

Murray first came to notice when he won the under-12 age class at the prestigious Orange Bowl tournament in Miami. At the age of 15 he left Scotland to train in Barcelona and two years later won the Junior US Open title. In 2005 he made his debut on the ATP tour and reached his first tour final in September of that year in Thailand. He won his first tournament in San Diego in 2006, retained this title and also won the St. Petersburg Open in 2007. Murray broke into the world’s top twenty by the end of 2007 and continued to rise in the world rankings throughout 2008. After a disappointing defeat at the 2008 Olympics he rebounded to reach the US Open final and become the first Briton to win back-to-back ATP tour titles in over 30 years.

At the 2012 Olympics Murray, in front of his nation's fans at Wimbledon, defeated Roger Federer in the final for the gold medal. Later that summer he won his first Grand Slam singles title by winning the US Open. In 2013 Murray became the first male Brit to win at Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936, and the first British Wimbledon singles champion since Virgina Wade in 1977.
