A former world number one and one of the only players to give the Big Three bit of a run for their money at their peak, Great Britain’s Andy Murray has been one of the top tennis players in the world. All the information about Andy Murray and the tennis racquet he uses along with its specifications, customization and other players using this, can be found in the piece below.
Having won the junior US Open, Murray turned on the form at the senior level when he overcame great odds to win three Grand Slam titles in his career.
This came at a time when Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic were all somewhere at the close to their peaks as well, making it a rather special achievement. It also led many to suggest he might have ended with a few more majors in his kitty had his career not coincided with the three greats.
Having won his first senior title in San Jose in 2006, Murray’s career seemed to have peaked in the 2011-12 period when he claimed eight tennis titles, including a gold medal at the London Olympics and his first major at the US Open.
Murray continued his good form over to 2013 as he went on to become the first male Brit in more than seven decades to win the Wimbledon.
And if the 2011-12 period was a golden one in his career, Murray topped that in 2016 with a string of nine tournament victories including a second title at Wimbledon. A Shanghai and Paris Masters victory along with an ATP Finals win proved to be the cherry on a cake of a season.
A hip injury made it difficult for him to walk on days, and almost made him announce his retirement from the sport but his fighting spirit helped him make a comeback and win an ATP title in Antwerp in 2019.
A defensive baseliner, Murray has been described as one of the top counterpunchers in the sport, with an uncanny ability to remain in rallies.
What has made Murray more potent over the years is his ability to seize the opportunity to convert defence into offense, and the possession of a backhand that, like some of the other top players is one of the best in the business.
