Andrew Murray

Andrew Barron "Andy" Murray, OBE, (born 15 May 1987) is a Scottish professional tennis player, ranked World No. 6 and British No. 1. He achieved a top-10 ranking by the ATP for the first time on 16 April 2007, and reached a career peak of World No. 2 in August 2009, then again in April/May 2013. He is the current holder of the Wimbledon Championships singles title, and is the 2012 Olympic tennis men's singles champion. In 2013, Murray became the 6th man in tennis history to have won over $30,000,000 in career prize money. At the 2012 US Open, Murray 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. This title makes him the only British male to become a Grand Slam singles champion during the Open Era. On 7 July 2013, Murray won the 2013 Wimbledon Championships, becoming the first British man to do so since Fred Perry, 77 years previously. He again beat Djokovic in the final, this time in straight sets. As a result of his Wimbledon win, Murray was voted the BBC Sports Personality of the Year in December 2013. Four weeks after losing his first Wimbledon final to Roger Federer, Murray faced the Swiss again at the 2012 Olympic Games, defeating him in straight sets to win the gold medal in the men's singles final, becoming the first British singles champion in over 100 years. He also won a silver medal in 2012 mixed doubles, playing with Laura Robson. Murray is the only man in history to have won Olympic Gold and the US Open in the same calendar year, as well as only the third man to hold the Gold Medal and two majors on different surfaces (after Andre Agassi and Rafael Nadal). He has been the runner-up in five other singles Grand Slam finals: the 2008 US Open, the 2010, 2011 and 2013 Australian Open, and the 2012 Wimbledon Championships, losing three to Roger Federer and two to Novak Djokovic. He is the second man in the open era to achieve three runner-up finishes at the Australian Open, after Stefan Edberg lost his third final in 1993. In 2011, Murray became only the seventh player in the Open Era to reach the semi-finals of all four Grand Slam tournaments in one year. (Source Wikipedia)
