Andy has been ranked one of the world’s best tennis players since 2007, and is a three-time Grand Slam runner-up. He would go on to win more than 20 ATP titles by 2012. In an amazing effort he also took the gold medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

His playing-style is best described as a defensive counter-puncher. His strengths include groundstrokes with low error rate, the ability to anticipate and react, and his transition from defence to offence with speed, which enables him to hit winners from defensive positions.

Having practiced tennis since he was an elementary student, Murray entered his first tournament—Florida’s Orange Bowl—at the age of 12, and won. Five years later, he won the U.S. Open junior title. Later that year, he was named the BBC’s 2004 “Young Sports Personality of the Year.” And in 2005, he became the youngest player to compete in the Davis Cup.

In 2006, with new coach Brad Gilbert, Murray beat Roger Federer in Round 2 of the Cincinnati Masters tournament. Also that year, he beat tennis star Andy Roddick in the semifinals of the SAP Open. By 2007, Murray was a three-time Association of Tennis Professionals titleist, winning both the 2006 and ’07 SAP Opens, as well as the St. Petersburg Open.

In 2007, Murray became ranked as one of the world’s top 10 tennis players. In the following years, his ranking improved to No. 4 and No. 2, and he became a three-time Grand Slam runner-up.

In January 2012, Murray won the Brisbane Open 250 tournament, claiming his 22nd ATP title.

Later that year, Murray made it to the Wimbledon final for the first time, winning the Wimbledon semifinal against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on July 6, 2012. Murray’s victory was a remarkable feat as he was the first tennis pro from Britain to reach the Wimbledon final since 1938.

Murray avenged his Wimbledon loss at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, held in London, where he beat Federer to take his first Olympic gold medal. Murray’s victory prevented Federer from attaining his first Olympic singles gold medal.

Murray wears Adidas sportswear; in 2009 he was signed up for a three year deal worth £15 million. In June 2012, the Swiss watch manufacturer Rado announced that Murray had signed a deal to wear their D-Star 200 model.

Murray is sponsored by Head and plays the YOUTEK Radical Pro with a Prestige grommet. He wore Fred Perry apparel until early 2010, when he signed a five-year £10m contract with Adidas. This includes wearing their range of tennis shoes. The contract with Adidas allowed Murray to keep his shirt sleeve sponsors Royal Bank of Scotland and Highland Spring.

As of May 2012, Murray has an estimated wealth of £24m, about half of this (£12.6m) won in prize money since making his professional debut in 2003, the remainder coming from sponsorship deals.
