Andy Murray Biography

Andrew "Andy" Murray is a Scottish professional tennis player, ranked World No. 3 and currently the British No. 1. At the 2012 US Open, he became the first British player since 1977, and the first British man since 1936, to win a Grand Slam singles tournament, when he defeated Novak Djokovic in five sets. He embarked on his professional tennis career as the youngest Briton ever to play in the Davis Cup. He was named the 2005 BBC Scotland Sports Personality of the Year. In 2006, Murray won his first ATP title, the SAP Open, defeating World No. 11 Lleyton Hewitt in the final. Murray then won a Davis Cup rubber (but lost in doubles), was a finalist at the Legg Mason Tennis Classic, and then reached his first Masters Series semifinal in Toronto at the Rogers Cup. The next year, he successfully defended his San Jose title, defeating Ivo Karlović in the final. Before the clay season Murray defeated Raemon Sluiter in the Davis Cup to help Britain win the tie. Murray opened the 2009 season with a successful defence of his title at the Qatar Open in Doha, defeating Andy Roddick in straight sets. He won another Masters title in Miami over Novak Djokovic. At the Valencia Open 500 in 2010, Murray partnered his brother Jamie Murray to the final, where they defeated Mahesh Bhupathi and Max Mirnyi. At the 2012 London Olympics, Murray defeated Roger Federer in straight sets to win the gold medal in men's singles, becoming the first British champion in over 100 years. He also won a silver medal in mixed doubles.
