Andrew "Andy" Murray (born May 15, 1987) is a Scottish professional tennis player. He is ranked World No. 4, having previously held the No. 2 ranking position for two weeks, from August 17, 2009 to August 31, 2009, during which time he failed to progress beyond the fourth round of the 2009 U.S. Open and fell back to No. 3, which makes him the highest-ranked British player since Fred Perry. Murray achieved a top 10 ranking by the Association of Tennis Professionals for the first time on April 16, 2007. In 2008, he finished runner-up to Roger Federer at the US Open.
In 2005, Murray won the BBC Scotland Sports Personality of the Year Award and the sport section of the Top Scot awards. Murray is most proficient on a fast surface (such as hard courts), although he has worked hard since 2008 on improving his clay court game. Murray works with a team of fitness experts, along with Miles Maclagan acting as his main coach. He was previously coached by American Brad Gilbert, who used to coach former World No. 1 players Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick.
