His performance to date has been majorly impressive, his determination and drive
bringing a forceful power to his game..read on to see the path of Andy's journey.

Andy Murray..The Man

Andy Murray is often criticised for his solemn appearance on camera.
He has been portrayed as being dull, moody and without personality.

A recent televised documentary showed a very different side to
Andy Murray.
The warmth of his personality and sense of humour shone through.
The Cameras on court don't reflect the true picture of the the man himself.


Wimbledon 2012

Andy Murray reached the final of Wimbledon in 2012, but was beaten by
Roger Federer
However, Andy went on to win an Olympic Gold Medal in the 2012 Olympic Games
beating Roger Federer.
Andy Murray also won his first Grand Slam in 2012, against Novak Djokovic, in the final at
Flushing Meadows in New York.

Wimbledon 2013..Gone Yersel Andy

Andy Murray's Matches 24th June to 5th July.

First Round Andy Murray defeated Benjamin Becker 6-4, 6-3, 6-2
It was his first appearance at SW19 since winning gold and silver at the London Olympics,
and Andy Murray
didn’t disappoint the British fans as he strolled out to a standing ovation.
Murray had dispatched Becker straight sets the week before in the quarter-finals of Queen’s ,
and this time took just one hour and 53 minutes to brush aside his German opponent.

Second round – Murray defeated Yen-Hsun Lu 6-3, 6-3, 7-5
Murray was prepared for a challenge from the man from Chinese Taipei, who made a name
for himself when he reached the quarter-finals here in 2010 after beating Andy Roddick.
In addition, Yen-Hsun had beaten Murray in the first round of the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
However, the Scot got his revenge with a straight-sets victory in Indian Wells this year and
followed with an equally impressive performance here.

Third round – Murray defeated Tommy Robredo 6-2, 6-4, 7-5
On paper the match up with the No.32 seed had the potential to be a tricky affair, but as Murray
breezed through his third match without dropping a set,and it took the Scot just two hours and
one minute
to see off the Spaniard,

Fourth round – Murray defeated Mikhail Youzhny 6-4, 7-6 (5), 6-1
Another straight sets victor, this time over the Russian No.20 seed and former world No.8.
Despite being broken twice in the second set, Murray served a total of 15 aces against the
2012 Wimbledon quarter-finalist,.

Quarter-finals – Murray defeated Fernando Verdasco 4-6, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4, 7-5
Murray had warned the tussle against the Spaniard wouldn’t be easy and for the first time of the Championships, the nerves of Murray supporters were tested when the man from Dunblane was required to come back from two sets down, to defeat the former world No.7, in a dramatic match lasting three hours and 27 minutes.

Semi finals
– Murray defeated Jerzy Janowicz 6-7(2), 6-4, 6-4, 6-3

Murray has advanced to the finals of The Championships for the second time in his career.

The Final

Andy Murray will play Serbian Novak Djokovic on Sunday 7th July for the Wimbeldon Championship Title.

The two players are known to be friends, in coming through youth tournaments together.
They have great mutual respect and admiration for each other, both personally,
and on the court.

Good Luck Andy

The Whole of Scotland is behind you
All round Britain Too
You have done us proud our Andy
We are all so rooting for you.


Your time has come for the glory

I have never been into sports really, but Tennis is always a game I thought I might have enjoyed playing, or golf. At any rate a good review of Andy Murry's accomplishments.

Nice review and support for Andy Murray, Mariah. I too wish him well as Henman could not win Wimbledon despite coming close few times. Andy has a sense of humor too though his rather dour demeanor gets highlighted. I remember his words after losing to Federer in Australian open final couple of years ago. " It is a shame I cannot play like Roger but only cry like him". He was recalling Roger breaking down the previous year after losing to Nadal! siva
