Taken from Andy Murray's official website, October 2013:
Andy Murray OBE, currently ranked number 3 in the world, is the British No.1 and reigning Wimbledon, US Open and Olympic Singles Champion.
From winning his first tournament as an under-10 junior at the Dunblane Sports Club to his first junior major at the US Open it became apparent Andy was destined for the top.
After turning pro in 2005, Andy won his first ATP title, the SAP open in San Jose, a year later. Fast forward two years and seven more tour titles, Andy reached his first grand slam final, the 2008 US Open. However in 2012, having lost in three subsequent grand slam final appearances, Andy became the US Open Champion. This was hot on the heels of an illustrious Gold Medal victory at Wimbledon during the London 2012 Olympics. Andy then ended years of British heartbreak on the same turf just a year later by becoming the first British male in 77 years to win the highly coveted Wimbledon Championships in London in July 2013.
Currently on 28 career titles, Andy is Great Britain’s most successful tennis player of the Open era and his grand slam title ended Great Britain’s 76-year wait for a male grand slam champion.
