Andy Murray

A double Olympic gold-medallist, three-time Grand Slam champion and Davis Cup winner, Andy Murray is Great Britain's most successful male tennis player of the modern era.

In front of a passionate home crowd, at the London 2012 Olympic Games, he won the Men's Singles gold by beating Switzerland’s Roger Federer in straight sets, and claimed silver in the Mixed Doubles, alongside an 18-year-old Laura Robson.

Four years later, Murray retained his singles title at Rio 2016, beating Juan Martin del Potro in a thrilling, and exhausting, match to decide gold.

Having won taken top honours in London, Murray’s memorable summer continued with his first Grand Slam singles title, the US Open, and the following year he became the first British man to win Wimbledon in 77 years as he dispatched Novak Djokovic in straight sets amid fervour on centre court.

Murray's formative tennis schooling came from his tennis-mad mother Judy and on the clay courts on Spain, and the dedication has paid off for both Andy and older brother Jamie.

In 2015, the pair helped Great Britain to an extraordinary Davis Cup triumph, and the next summer Murray junior captured his second Wimbledon title, beating Milos Raonic.

Andy has also been a Grand Slam runner-up six times, while Jamie is a three-time Grand Slam doubles champion.

In April 2015, Andy married long-time girlfriend Kim Sears, daughter of tennis coach Nigel Sears, and they have a daughter, Sophia.
