About the Author:

Andy Murray was born on 15 May 1987 in Dunblane, Scotland. In September 2004 he won the boys' singles title at the US Open in New York, and that December he was crowned BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year. The following year he became the youngest-ever player to represent Britain in the Davis Cup, reached the third round in his debut at Wimbledon, and broke into the top 100 at the Thailand Open. In 2006 he won his first ATP title at San Jose, and ended 2007 ranked number 11 in the world, having won the St Petersburg Open. 2009 saw Andy off to a career-best 45-7 start, capturing four ATP World Tour titles, including becoming the first British player since Bunny Austin in 1938 to earn the title at Queen's Club.

Book Description Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 124 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. With Andy, the sky s the limit - John McEnroe. At Wimbledon 2005, Andy Murray announced himself on the tennis world stage by thrashing star pros George Bastl and Radek Stepanek: a legend was born and Britain had a new sporting hero. From there, Andy s rise to the top has been unstoppable: from winning his first ATP title at San Jose in 2006 and deposing Tim Henman to become British Number 1, to beating a host of former and current World number 1s - including Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt, Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal - Murray has gone from strength to strength. With his triumphant win at Queen s in June 2009, a storming performance at Wimbledon 2009 - which saw Andy reach the semi-finals for the first time - and his crowning as World Number 2, we have seen Murray reach even greater heights. But Murray is much more than a truly gifted tennis player: he has changed the face of the British game. His grit, passion and success on court, combined with his ranking as one of the world s best players, has reignited Britain s love of tennis and inspired a whole new generation of kids to become tennis fans. Here, in his updated story, Andy regales us with the highs and the lows, the triumphs and the near misses to show us just how far the boy from Dunblane has come.
