About Andy Murray

Sir Andrew Murray OBE is British professional tennis player, Olympic gold medallist and three-time Grand Slam champion. 

Murray is a former world No. 1 and the first British player since Fred Perry in 1936 to win multiple Wimbledon titles.

Murray was born in Glasgow, Scotland, to parents William Murray and Judy Murray, who would introduce Andy to tennis at just three years old. 

Murray turned professional in 2005, ranked No. 407 on the men’s tour and ended the year ranked No. 64 in the world. Between 2006 and 2011, he picked up multiple Masters titles becoming British No. 1 and world No. 2 in the process.

In 2012, Murray’s career reached a new level as he took home an Olympic gold medal in the men’s singles and later in the year he defeated Novak Djokovic to secure his first Grand Slam at the US Open. Wimbledon titles in 2013 and 2016 saw Murray receive a Knighthood in the 2017 New Year’s Honours list.

Murray was part of the ‘Big Four’ that dominated men’s tennis between 2004 and 2016. The later stages of his career have been blighted by injury, however, seeing him drop away from the group while Rafael Nadal, Roger Feder and Djokovic continue to compete at the highest level of the sport.
