BIOGRAPHY

Andy Murray’s Olympic final victory over Roger Federer at London 2012 proved to be a watershed moment for the Scot.

Earlier in the year Murray, who grew up in Dunblane, had lost to Federer at the final of Wimbledon but got his revenge on the Swiss before going on to claim US Open glory later in the year.

Murray added another Grand Slam title to his collection the following summer where he became the first Brit to win a Wimbledon singles title since Virginia Wade in 1977.

He also appeared at Beijing 2008 in both the singles and doubles while London 2012 saw him not only pick up a gold in the singles but also silver in the mixed doubles alongside Laura Robson.

Olympic years seem to suit Murray, as in 2016 he took a second Wimbledon trophy before becoming the first male tennis player to win two Olympic singles titles with gold in Rio and earning the world no.1 spot three months later.
