Sir Andy Murray is considered one of the greatest athletes Britain has produced over the years. Murray was part of the elite ‘big 4’ club. After failing to capitalize on his first four Grand Slam finals, Andy finally won his first-ever Major by beating rival Novak Djokovic at the US Open 2012.
It’s unfortunate that Murray didn’t have as much of a glittering career as his fellow rivals have had, but he surely has and will go down as one of the best ever. The fact that he’s won two Gold Medals at the Olympic Games ahead of the likes of Djokovic, Federer, or Nadal is quite laudable.
In 2014, after suffering a heavy loss to Rafael Nadal, Andy had appointed former World No.1 Amelie Mauresmo as his coach. Unfortunately, the pair didn’t manage to win a slam. Reflecting on that aspect, Andy said,
“It’s one of my regrets that I didn’t win a Grand Slam when I was working with her. And for people, a lot of people, that was considered a failure because I didn’t do that.”
However, their partnership did have some good moments. They managed to reach the final of the Australian Open in 2015. Also, that year, Murray reached the semifinals at Roland Garros and Wimbledon. Andy also won his first-ever clay-court title, beating none other than Nadal in the final.

It’s sad that Andy has been troubled by injuries to his hip ever so often. A player who has a lot to give the sport yet, he has come back on tour and played tournaments. Unfortunately, he hasn’t had the best of results as he did before. Over the years, he has enthralled us with some amazing tennis. It would certainly be a fairytale if he could return to where he belonged.
