Andrew "Andy" Murray (born 15 May 1987) is a Scottish professional tennis player, ranked World No. 3, and is the British No. 1. He achieved a top-10 ranking by the Association of Tennis Professionals for the first time on 16 April 2007, and reached a career peak of World No. 2 from 17 to 31 August 2009. At the 2012 US Open, he became the first British player since 1977, and the first British man since 1936, to win a Grand Slam singles tournament, when he defeated Novak Djokovic in five sets. This title makes him the only British male to become a Grand Slam champion during the Open Era.

At the 2012 London Olympics, Murray defeated Roger Federer in straight sets to win the Gold medal in Men's Singles, becoming the first British champion in over 100 years. He also won a Silver medal in Mixed Doubles. He is the only man to win the Olympic Gold and the US Open back-to-back.

He has been the runner-up in four other singles Grand Slam finals: the 2008 US Open, the 2010 Australian Open, the 2011 Australian Open, and 2012 Wimbledon, losing three to Roger Federer and one to Novak Djokovic. In 2011, Murray became the seventh player in the Open Era to reach the semi-finals of all four Grand Slam tournaments in one year.
