Murray makes his Laver Cup debut with Team Europe at London’s O2 Arena, a hometown hero who in 2016 became the first No.1-ranked men’s singles player from Britain. He was also the first Brit to win the US Open (2012) and Wimbledon (2013, 2016), since Fred Perry won both events in 1936. Alongside his three majors, Murray won a record-setting two consecutive Olympic gold medals, at the 2012 London and 2016 Rio Games.
Murray was raised in Dunblane, Scotland and picked up tennis at the age of three. He moved to Barcelona aged 15 to improve his tennis and later became one of Briton’s most cherished athletes, earning a knighthood on May 16, 2019. Murray loves many sports, including pro wrestling and practicing against his tennis-playing brother Jamie. During the COVID-19 pandemic, he won the Madrid Open video game tournament and donated his 45,000 euros in prizemoney to the UK’s National Health Service and to the ATP’s Player Relief Program.
Murray continues to rebuild his career after hip surgery in 2018-2019, famously documented in “Andy Murray: Resurfacing.” He has won over 700 singles matches – including 14 ATP Masters 1000 titles – and is the only player with at least seven victories over rivals Nadal, Federer and Djokovic, who together make up the Big Four. Andy has shown determination and fearlessness throughout his career, and has upset higher-ranked opponents throughout 2022, including Stefanos Tsitsipas, Nick Kyrgios, Denis Shapovalov, David Goffin and Reilly Opelka.
