BIOGRAPHY

Andy Murray is Great Britain's No.1 tennis player and has made four appearances in Grand Slam finals and reached at least the last four on ten occasions.

He has also won 22 career titles, including eight Masters 1000 competitions and has also featured for Great Britain in the Davis Cup. 

At Wimbledon, Murray became the first Brit to reach a men's singles final at the Championships, Wimbledon for 74 years this year. 

Murray has reached the last four in each of his last four visits to Wimbledon, going out in the semi-final three times in a row prior to this year.

Murray's first Olympic appearance did not go to plan in Beijing, losing in the first round of the singles to Lu Yen-Hsun of Taiwan before bowing out in round two in the men's doubles competition alongside brother Jamie. 

His grandfather Roy Erskine played for Hibernian FC and as a result, Murray is a keen supporter. He was also asked to train with Rangers FC as a 15-year-old but declined, opting to focus on tennis. 

At the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Murray won gold in the men’s singles and silver in the mixed doubles with partner Laura Robson.
